Snow Arrangements



10th March 2023

We have decided on grounds of safety for our families and staff travelling to close the school today. Please take care and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.



Adverse Weather & School Closure Procedure

In the event of bad weather, please note the following:

  • The Local Authority will no longer make a decision to impose a blanket closure of all schools and academies.

Any decision to close the school will be made in consultation with the Headteachers of the other schools in the cluster.

  • ParentMail parents will receive an email alert giving information (or be notified via Class Dojo).
  • The school’s website will also provide up-to-date information.
  • Soilhull MBC will endeavour to communicate information via its website and local media outlets.

If you do not have access to the internet please listen out for information on local radio. Unless you are notified otherwise, you should always assume the school is open.



If conditions deteriorate during a school day, the previously described notification process will be applied.


In the event of snow, you will be able to find more information from the sources outlined below.
