Severe Weather Information

Early closure

In the event of the school having to close early due to bad weather or other emergency, we will follow this procedure:

  • Parents will be informed via Seesaw
  • An announcement will also be made via Facebook

Any children who have not been collected will be kept in school until 3.30pm. It is therefore very important that you have supplied us with up-to-date emergency contact mobile telephone numbers.

Closure before the start of the school day

If the school has to be closed before the start of the school day, parents will be informed at the earliest possible opportunity via Seesaw. 

An announcement will also be posted on Facebook and messages will be broadcast on local radio and will appear on the websites listed below.

You are asked to listen to the radio and to contact teachers via Seesaw. Please avoid telephoning the school, the radio station or the Local Education Authority, so that lines are kept clear for emergency use.

Please note that many staff members travel some distance to school, from locations where weather conditions may be worse than those being experienced in the school area. Any decision to close the school will take into account whether enough staff members are able to travel to school in order to ensure children’s safety on site, as well as local conditions.
