Adverse Weather

Bad Weather Arrangements

We will always do our best to keep the school open and if you have not heard anything please assume that the school will continue to be in full operation.  The school will only close if we have insufficient staff to supervise children or if there are health and safety concerns.

Mr Byrne normally makes the decision about closure after consulting with staff about their travel conditions.  It is difficult to do this much in advance as conditions can differ where people live and so decisions are not made until early in the morning if there has been snow overnight.  We will try to advise everyone by 7:15am.

There may also be times where the decision is made to close the school early due to worsening weather conditions. In such circumstances, the school will begin a procedure for contacting parents as soon as possible that the school is being closed.


How will you be informed?
We will send information via the SIMS ParentApp (by push notification) and by email using Parentmail.  Please make sure the your apps are information are up to date and that you have enabled ‘Push Notifications’ to take place. We will also post a message on the home page of the school website.

 

Your decision
If you live some distance away you must make your own decision about road conditions and let the school know if your child will not be attending.  However, if you live within walking distance your child is expected to attend if the school is open.
