The school will always try to stay open whenever possible, and safe, to do so. However, should there be a need to close the school for any reason (e.g. Floods, snow, loss of electricity and therefore heating and lighting, loss of water etc) then we will contact parents as soon as possible on that day.
Should the closure decision be made prior to the start of the school day then school will contact parents as soon as possible that morning – and usually before 8.00 a.m. – using the Cascade system we have in place. A member of staff will phone each family to notify them if this decision is taken, the school website will be updated, Cumbria County Council will be informed and we will also notify parents using our Parent Mail system – via E-mail, Text message or both.
