SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS - EMERGENCY CLOSURE Please listen to Shropshire Radio 96 FM for details of school closures If a decision is made to close the school, we are required to contact Local Radio Stations with details to enable broadcasts to be made before journeys begin BBC Radio Shropshire (96FM) will list schools closed Please do not ring the radio station to find out if school is closed but listen to 96FM or log onto http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/shropshire/hi/tv_and_radio/ or http://www.shropshire.gov.uk School Transport If school is open, transport operators will do their best to run school transport. However they may not operate normal routes if they consider them to be too dangerous especially those routes off main roads. What happens if school is open and weather deteriorates during the day? If road conditions deteriorate during the school day and a decision is made to close the school early, we have a system in place whereby parents of children travelling on school buses will be informed that the children are coming home early. No children will be released from school until contact has been made with parents/carers. This is a priority as it is important that there is someone at the other end to receive them. You will need to ensure that we have updated emergency telephone numbers/mobile contact. If the children travel by car or are within walking distance you may like to collect the children at an earlier time, should the weather deteriorate during the day to the point when the school is likely to close. Suitable clothing Please make sure that your child arrives in suitable warm clothing and wellies if the weather is bad.
