Emergency Closure including Winter Weather
In response to difficult conditions:
The CEO will decide, in light of the particular circumstances prevailing in the local area, whether or not a closure of a school is necessary, as a result of; (i) damage to the school buildings, (ii) loss of utility supply, (iii) difficulty in accessing the site and/or buildings safely.
If under the circumstances the CEO concludes that a school cannot open:
Closure decisions will be immediately reported to Shropshire Council
All major radio stations that serve Shropshire will be informed by Shropshire Council that the school(s) is closed and they will broadcast this information at regular intervals
The school will inform parents via normal communication channels - text message and/or email, website, social media
