Severe Weather


 School will stay open where possible when there is severe weather such as deep snow or very high winds .

 Please do not assume school is closed as we will do our best to keep school open.


In the event of severe weather conditions, Mrs Hewitt-Lee  will have made a decision as to whether school is open by 8.00 am. If  school will need to close  a message will go out via the following lines of communication:

  • Text Message – A text message will go out to parents as soon as practicable. If  on the rare occasion school closes at a time within the school day,  parents/carers will be informed by text message, therefore it is  important to keep your contact details up to date.
  • Our School Website
  • Local Radio – Information is given out on: Key 103, Tameside Radio, GMR

Late opening and/or early closure may be a possibility in poor weather conditions and school will either inform parents the night before or via the above lines of communication.
