School Closure in the event of Snow/Adverse     Weather Conditions

If school is not able to open due to snow or other adverse weather conditions parents/carers will be notified in the following ways:

  • by text message - please ensure that we have up-to-date mobile numbers
  • details will be posted on our website
  • our school will be listed on Bradford Schools Online bso.bradford.gov.uk under Closed Schools
  • announcements will be made on local radio stations

It is our aim to keep school open if this is at all possible, taking full account of the health and safety of staff and pupils.

If weather conditions worsen during the school day and it becomes necessary to close school, parents and carers will be notified by text message.  Under these circumstances we would appreciate children being collected as soon as possible.  Any children who cannot be collected will be cared for in school until arrangements can be made for them to get home safely.

To help keep telephone lines open, please try to avoid telephoning the school.
