Emergency School Closure 

We recognise that the decision to close a school in the event of an emergency (e.g. snow, flooding, no water or heating) significantly impacts upon you, as parents and guardians. This page outlines the agreed procedure which all schools are asked to follow and offers the key things considered, both before and after the decision to close has been made.


As a matter of policy,  the school will make every effort to remain open. However, severe weather can sometimes lead to transport problems which make it impossible for the school to function normally. In the unlikely event that the school will be closed, a notice will be posted on the front page of this website.

Information will also be posted on the Lincolnshire County Council website and the information will be broadcast on BBC Radio Lincs and Lincs FM

We will also endeavour to notify all parents by text as soon as a decision has been made to close the school. For this reason, please ensure that the school office has your up to date mobile number at all times.

Please do not telephone the school to check as we need to keep phone lines clear for emergency communication.
