Snow and Bad Weather Arrangements
In the event of bad weather we shall endeavour to make any decisions on the closure of the school by 8.00 am.
In the event of closure we will send a group text to all parents. Please ensure that we have your current mobile phone number. You can check this with Mrs Baxter in the office. The school will also announce the closure via the scrolling banner on the school website so please check this if you are unsure.
North Yorkshire County Council publishes a list of school closures on their website.
We will inform local radio station The Bay who announce a list of school closures in the region.
In the event of heavy snow fall during the school day that causes us to be concerned about children’s welfare in relation to returning home, we will again text for immediate collection, update the North Yorkshire website and inform the local radio stations mentioned above.
It is always difficult to make a decision about closure due to the unpredictability of the weather but we will aim to do this as swiftly as we can. Please rest assured that any decisions taken will be based around the safety of everyone in our school community.
