When the school has to be close due to severe weather conditions or other
emergency circumstances, the school will issue a message on our Facebook page and to all parents via Parentmail.
Information, in event of a closure where notice is possible, will also be given on the following Radio
Stations (frequencies below):
Radio Newcastle: 95.4FM

Decisions to close the school will be made on the grounds of safety for pupils and staff. This may include making an assessment of the school site and whether the grounds are unsafe due to ice and/or snow.
