Adverse Weather and School Closure

Unavoidable School Closures

During the winter period, adverse weather conditions and in particular heavy snow, can create travelling conditions which mean it is difficult for pupils and staff to travel safely to and from school. In severe weather conditions where it is necessary to partially or fully close the school we will aim to communicate this to parents and carers as early as possible by:

  • Displaying a notification here, on the front page of our school website.
  • Notifying BBC Radio Lancashire who will broadcast the information throughout the day.
  • Notifying Lancashire County Council who will display the information on their School Closures web page.

We will only ever close the school for one day at a time. If we need to close the school on subsequent days we will communicate this in the same way at the beginning of each day.
