Below is a reminder of our procedures and communication methods should we need to consider closing the school or changing our regular operating procedures due to adverse conditions.
Wherever possible we will contact you with a timely letter sent home with children, but you will appreciate that weather-related decisions are usually taken in the light of conditions first thing in the morning.
How we will communicate with you
We will use the following means of communication:
- Our Facebook page
- Our Twitter account
- This website, which will be updated on a regular basis. The latest information concerning any possible disruption to normal schooling will be prominently displayed on the home page.
- Should we need to send out more detailed information we may send out automated text service
- Listen in to local radio stations for official bulletins: Radio City 96.7 or online at http://www.radiocity.co.uk/ ; Heart Fm 97.1 or online at http://www.heart.co.uk/wirral/
Other advice during adverse weather
Please ensure that your child is coming to school properly equipped, including sensible footwear and warm, outdoor clothing.
As always, if a child fails to arrive at school and we have not received a message from you, you will receive an automated call from our ‘first day absence call’ system to alert you to the fact. This is an extra layer of security for you and your child.
If you allow your child to bring a mobile phone to school in case of emergencies, please remind them to ensure that it is switched off and out of sight at all times, in line with school policy.
In the unlikely event that we have to close the school during the course of the school day, or if public transport is likely to be adversely affected by weather towards the end of the day, we will make contact with you to ensure that you are kept informed of your child’s whereabouts.
