Emergency & SEVERE WEATHER Closure

The procedure for informing parents of our school closing due to severe weather or in case of emergency closure is as follows: -

  • We will send you a text message if at all possible
  • Details will be passed to the local radio station, Radio Leicester - 104.9 FM
  • They will broadcast the information from 7.30 am.
  • You can also access the up to date information on line at Radio Leicester
  • Parents/Guardians must not contact the radio station direct as this hinders the process.

During adverse weather conditions we will endeavour to minimise the risk to school users by carrying out the following:

  • A safe route from the main gate to all school entrances will be cleared of snow and/or ice and gritted.
  • Warning signs will be displayed.

All school users/visitors/staff, including pupils, must keep to the cleared & gritted routes.

Please note that all school users have a personal responsibility to be careful when walking on snow and ice

Please read the detailed Emergency Closure Information below


We have at least 8 members of staff trained in First Aid with 3 members trained in Paediatric First Aid
