School closure and transport

If a decision is made to close the school due to poor weather the school website will be updated in the first instance.

Listen out for bulletins on local radio.

If you have signed up to the school's text messaging service you will be informed by text.

If the school is open and a school bus does not run in the morning due to dangerous weather conditions, the bus company will NOT provide a bus for the return journey at the end of the school day. If you decide to bring your child into school you will need to ensure that you can arrange for them to get home at the end of the school day.

If you wish to sign up to the school text service please contact the school admin office
