Emergency Closure Procedure

On occasion it may be necessary to close the school without giving parents & carers prior warning. The following points should be noted:
  • Any closure will be broadcast on Radio Newcastle, with regular announcements between the hours of  7am - 8.30am.
  • We will aim to update Northumberland County Council website and our own website as soon as possible.  Please keep checking for updates.
  • We hold emergency contact numbers for each pupil to ensure there is someone available to accept your child in the event of an unplanned closure.
  • In periods of bad weather, when closure may be experienced, you will be contacted by the Headteacher or Admin Officer as early as possible. 
We will always endeavor to keep the school open and operating as normal but should the decision be taken to close please bear in mind it will be for the safety of both the children and staff.
