Parents Code of Conduct



Should we experience adverse weather conditions that would mean the school was unable to open, we would communicate this to you via Parentmail on the morning of the closure. This would be an email and also a text.


If the school should need to be closed early due to poor weather, we would advise parents using parentmail and a phone call if necessary.

Please ensure your parentmail account and all contact details are up to date
