Bad Weather and School Closures

Bad Weather Procedures:

In the event of bad weather having an impact on our ability to open the school you will be notified as soon as possible by text message. It is important therefore that the contact numbers for the primary contact for each child is kept up to date.


In the event of a full / partial school closure before the start of the school day:

  1. We will send a text message to the primary contact
  2. We will post a message on the schools website
  3. We will notify Newcastle City council who will produce a list of closed schools on their website
  4. We will notify the local radio


In the event of a full/partial school closure during the school day:

  1. We will send a text message to the primary contact, giving them a time to collect the children and which entrance to use.
  2. Staff will hand children only to those known to be able to collected
  3. If any child has not been collected, telephone calls will be made to all contacts


In the event of heavy snow or ice you may receive a text message informing you that only one entrance to the school is open, this is for your safety as Mr Waggot (Site Manager) only has a limited time each morning to ensure that entrances are made safe.
