Severe Weather Procedures
I would like to remind you of the arrangements for notifying parents/carers of any school closures or delayed starts to the day.
It is important to us that school is open each day, providing the 190 days annual access to education that is your child’s entitlement. However, occasionally, in certain circumstances, it may be necessary that school is closed or that it may open at a later time. If road conditions make a normal start unlikely, we will delay opening until conditions improve. Notification of school closures or delayed starts will be through email to students, text to parents/carers and through social media. Details will also be put on the school website as soon as possible.
Kirklees Council’s website also lists any changes to school openings – www.kirklees.gov.uk.
In addition to these websites, we will attempt to ensure any announcement is posted to our Twitter feed.
