Arrangements for severe weather
We will endeavour to keep the school open and running as usual at all times.
Should there be particularly inclement weather, eg a severe snowfall, the following steps may be taken.
- If there is a particularly heavy snowfall, parents may decide to collect their child(ren) early. Parents will need to come to school to enable us to release their children. We will not release children from school without their parents before the usual finish time.
- If a decision is made during the school day to close the school, we would notify parents by text message and via the school website. Announcements would also be made on Heart Radio and/or BBC Radio Devon. Children would remain at school until collected by their parents or their representative.
- If a decision to close the school was made in advance but during the school day, parents would be notified by text message, letter via their child, and via the school website.
- Should the school be closed out of school hours, a text message, would be sent to parents and the message placed on the school website. There would also be an announcement on Heart Radio and BBC Radio Devon.
