Severe Weather Procedures

The decision to close the school unexpectedly will not be taken lightly. In all cases we will seek to avoid a school closure unless it is absolutely necessary.

The aim will be to maintain a service to parents and pupils for as long as is reasonably practical. The safety of the children and staff will be priority.

Once the decision to close the school has been made by the Headteacher the following procedures will be implemented:


• Parents will be informed of the closure by SMS text message, if possible by 8:00am


• The school website will display an information message


• The school closure will be posted on the Key 103 radio website http://www.key103.co.uk/school-closures/


• Information of the closure will be included on the Trafford Council Website www.trafford.gov.uk/schoolclosures


If the closure lasts for more than one day, a further text message will be sent to parents.Please check the school website as this will be updated regularly.
