Severe Weather Information



Planning for Severe Weather


During the winter if there is a fall of heavy snow overnight the school staff will monitor the situation and seek information from the Met office; local education authority and we will also consult Governors and other local schools in the area.


Our view is that the school should be open to all pupils at all times and any decision to close would be in extreme cases only.


If this happens information will be made available to tell you of the school closure via:


  • Text messaging service Teachers2Parents (so please ensure we have an up to date mobile phone number)
  • School website: this will be changed regularly with updates as they are known and Open/Closed information will be shown clearly on the first page by 8.00am every morning: (
  • Local media: Radio Lancashire and other local TV & radio stations


Be assured that we will always endeavour to open school where safety
