It is rare to have to close the school. In adverse weather conditions this decision would most likely be taken first thing in the morning. However very occasionally, if there is a marked deterioration of weather during the day or for some other reason (e.g. total failure of heating) it may be necessary to take the decision to close during the school day.
Should this occur parents will be sent a text and a Tweet at the earliest opportunity. The closure will also be announced on the front page of this website. In adverse weather conditions local radio stations will also be informed.
