School Closure

School – closures

Sometimes it is necessary for the school to close because of bad weather, loss of utility services (such as electric, gas or water) or other emergencies.

The staff work hard to keep open wherever possible but if circumstances mean that we have to make a decision to close the school or send children home early, there are various ways we contact parents.

Our first option is to use the School Text Service – Please ensure the office have your current mobile number

We will also use Local radio stations to communicate between schools and parents. Once the decision to close school has been made we will inform the local radio stations covering our area and ask them to broadcast a message to parents.

The local radio station used to broadcast school closure is:

  • Stray FM – 97.2 FM

North Yorkshire County Council will also endeavour to have a list of closures displayed by 9am on the day concerned at the following page –
