Adverse Weather Policy

 As the weather forecast is poor, we would like to remind you of the emergency procedures.

As well as the unpredictable weather, there may be times when we are not able to open school due to unforeseen emergencies such as no water which would mean that the site does not meet the necessary Health and Safety requirements. We could even find ourselves without enough staff available to look after all the children. Should any of these events occur we will communicate this information in the following ways: 

EMAIL - We will email messages as email will often arrive quicker so please check your emails. 

WEBSITE - You can check on Sheffield City Council Website:

RADIO - Messages will be relayed on:

Radio Sheffield 88.6, 104.1 FM  and  Radio Hallam: 97.4, 102.9, 103.4 FM 

Please do not ring school as the phone lines will be busy.

In the event of disruption caused by adverse weather the prime concern of the school must always be the safety of our pupils and staff
