Inclement Weather

Dear Parents/Carers,

Inclement Weather

If road conditions have prevented school transport from picking up your child, please keep them at home, as a safe return home cannot be guaranteed.

If it is possible to make a decision to close the school before 8.30 am, we will try to contact you on our Groupcall system by text message.

In the event of the school having to close after 9.00am, we will also contact you on our Groupcall system, by text message. The Groupcall system will show us when you have received our call, and we will assume that we can send your child home, unless we hear otherwise. If there are any difficulties with this, please contact the school directly. 

If it was not possible to contact all parents by Groupcall, and the bus or taxi was ready to leave, parents of pupils remaining in school would then be responsible for transporting their children home.

Pupils would remain in school until alternative arrangements had been made by the parents concerned.

Click on the following link to find out if your child's school is affected.  


I am sure you will understand why we therefore need to have up to date mobile numbers – if you have recently changed your number, please contact the Office as soon as possible.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school,


Many thanks,


Gillian B. Robertson
