School Arrangements for Unavoidable Closure of School


Please listen to Stray FM radio on 97.2 FM, or BBC Radio York on 104.3 or 103.7, or Star Radio on 103.5 or 102.3 to hear if the school is to close.

If school cannot be open on a particular day we will inform you either by e-mail/ text message and/ or by the local radio.

We will endevour to man the phone from 8.00am should you have any doubts about the school being open.

Do not travel to school if you feel the roads are not safe.

If school opens on any morning but the weather then starts to deteriorate significantly please collect your child/ children from school straight away.

If you are a working parent please make arrangements for someone who we know to be available to collect your child/ children.

If the weather forecast is for deteriorating weather during the day and you are unable to make arrangements for them to be collected before the end of the school day then please keep your child at home. Such an absence would be authorised on the grounds of safety.

Even though local children may be able to travel to school, please remember that many of the staff travel some distance and may be unable to travel safely. In this case the school would close because of inadequate spervision.

Than you for your co-operation/
