Emergency Closure Procedures:
We do endeavour to keep the school open but in the case of severe weather, where it would be too dangerous for staff to be travelling in, we may need to close the school. If the school is to be closed you will be notified by text (about 7 am) and the information will be given out via the local radio and on the Somerset Learning Platform via Somerset County Council website. Please ensure we have an up to date mobile number. We will not be able to phone parents via land lines.
