Bad Weather Protocol

Bad Weather Protocol 


The decision to close is one that is not taken lightly and is based on the safety and welfare of both pupils and staff, many of whom have to travel a distance to get to school.


Emergency closure will occur in exceptional circumstances, such as:


  • when there are severe weather conditions adversely affecting access to the school or;
  • where there is a loss of an essential services to the school which cannot be compensated by alternative provision.


If it is necessary to close the school due to adverse weather or other unexpected occurrences, the protocol will be as follows:


  • information about the closure will be added to the front page of the school website, as well as being posted on Facebook.
  • a text will be sent to all parents/carers who have registered a mobile phone number with the school office.
  • a message will be sent to Derbyshire County Council.
