Bad Weather Procedure

In the event of extreme weather conditions the following procedure will take place.


We will endeavour to keep school open, but if the weather deteriorates and conditions become worse we may have to close in the interests of everyone’s health and safety.


School closure is not taken lightly and done after discussions with other local schools and governors.


If school is closed then our procedure for informing parents remains the same. A text message will be sent as soon as possible and the local radio stations are informed. Parents can listen for announcements or check the radio station websites, and also the Derbyshire County Council Website


I would ask that everyone takes care when coming to and leaving school. If necessary some pathways, entrances and exits will be closed.  Signs will direct you to the safest pathway.


Please ensure your child has the correct clothing for school during the bad weather; i.e: Hat, scarf, gloves, coat and also a change of shoes if wearing Wellington boots.


Thank you for your understanding and patience in this matter.
