Mrs Anderton will inform radio Cumbria and CFM before 8:00am if teachers are unable to get to school and therefore school will have to close. Please listen to the radio in the first instance.
On the Closure Contacts you will find a telephone number of a parent you can contact, if you are unsure if the school is closed or not – I will have contacted them by 7:45am where possible.
We will also inform the appropriate staff at the local authority, who in turn, informs the bus and catering services.
For parents of children travelling by bus, please note that if the bus company is unable to collect your child in the morning (due to difficult road conditions), then they will not take them home at night. So, if you bring your child into school (instead of the bus), then you must collect them, unless otherwise agreed with the bus drivers.
We also use Teacher2Parents, which is a text messaging service. This service is used to send messages to parents and will also be used if the school is required to close.
If in doubt please telephone school but please always err on the side of caution and do not attempt a journey if the weather is bad.
