Emergency Closure Information

Should it be necessary to close the school premises in the event of an emergency situation, parents and carers will be notified by means of a text message and email to all parents/carers who are down as first contact on our school database. 

A notification will also be placed on our school website, school twitter and local radio stations will also be informed. Our intention is for any communication to be issued by 06.30am or the evening before.

Students should follow their normal timetable via MSTeams or appropriate learning platform.

Our intention is lessons will start at Period 1 on day 1 of closure– there will be no tutor time on day 1 to allow the school time to make the necessary arrangements.


In the event of an emergency closure which is replicated across the county i.e. a snow closure day which will cause childcare issues for many of our staff the following process will be followed:

  1. The school will be formally closed and students will not be allowed on site. A variety of enrichment activities will be provided in replacement of normal lessons for a maximum of 2 consecutive days. Students will be signposted to enrichment activities that they can complete at home/outside which have been pre prepared and will be made available on the school website - in this event students would ONLY attend a morning registration for both days.

      2. If it were necessary to keep the school site closed for a longer period of time, lessons would          be held on Microsoft Teams and students would be expected to follow their normal timetable.
