Extreme Weather

Procedure for Snow or Extreme Weather

Should we need to close the school due to snow or extreme weather conditions the following procedure is intended to clarify the arrangements.  Wherever possible we will do our utmost to keep the school open.

We will alert parents by:

  • Sending a text message
  • Publish a notice on this website
  • Alert our local radio stations.  Heart (97-107 FM), Palm (105.5 FM) and BBC Radio Devon (103.4 FM).

We will monitor the situation daily and repeat the process each morning, if it is necessary to keep the school closed.

Where severe weather occurs during the school day, parents will be contacted directly by the school.  In this very rare instance it may be necessary for parents to collect their children or arrange transport.  School transport can be contacted on 01803 208242.

In case we need to close it is important that you make sure the school office is informed of any change of telephone numbers.

We hope this information is helpful, should the situation arise.
