In the Event of Adverse Weather
School Closure Due to Severe Weather
In the event of severe weather, especially heavy snow, I will conduct a risk assessment of the safety of the site and then consult with the CEO before making any decision to close the school for the day.
We always hope to avoid that scenario but the health and safety of our pupils and staff must be weighed against any inconvenience caused by closure.
If a decision is taken to close the school due to severe weather, an announcement will be posted on our website by 7.00 am on the morning of the closure. We will also alert parents by sending a text message and email.
You will also be able to view our status on South Gloucestershire’s website where they publish the School Opening Status on all schools.
This webpage is updated by the school directly which guarantees that you are viewing the most recent information available.-you can view our status HERE
Please note: it is the parents/carers’ responsibility to cancel taxi arrangements
We would ask that you please consult our website in the first instance to avoid high volumes of telephone enquiries.
The care and support of residential pupils will not be affected by the potential school closures. We have a contingency plan in case of staffing issues due to roads being unsafe for travel.
