Snow Days

We do get our fair share of bad weather up here in the North Pennines but do all we can not to close.  If things are looking a bit dodgy at 6.00am, we will go into Snow Day mode.  This means that the start of the student day is put back to 10.00am to allow people more time for travelling.

Parents are contacted by ParentMail.  Information also goes out on the Website.

If conditions are looking grim by late morning we bring the end of the school day forward to2.30pm, again to ease travelling for those with longer journeys.

Our aim is to continue to offer the full six lessons on a 10.00am – 2.30pm day, although classes are shorter than normal.  This way teachers are able to keep up with their curriculum plans.

Snow work is posted on the Website in the Pupils section for those youngsters unable to get in.
