School Closure Policy

The safety of our learners and staff is our priority and during periods of bad weather or other serious disruptions, we must consider whether to take the difficult decision to temporarily close the school.


During a closure, we will use all the available routes to keep the school community up to date with what is happening. We will do this via:


  • Our website

  • Our social media pages

  • The Newcastle City Council school closures website

  • Local radio stations


Depending on the nature of the closure and any possible disruptions across the city, we may not always be able to share information using all of the methods listed above.


We encourage everyone to follow/like our social media accounts and share messages with other people if it is appropriate:


School closures can sometimes affect only specific yeargroups and we will always be as clear as possible in our communications about who is expected to attend and who is not.
