Bad Weather Advice

It is always our aim to keep the school open. However there may be times when severe weather conditions make it unsafe for travel or the premises unsafe for children and adults in which case  the school may need to be closed.

If we need to close the school due to hazardous conditions we will text all parents to let them know in advance of school opening.
