Emergency School Closure Procedures
In the event of an emergency (i.e. bad weather etc) the following practice will be put into action by the school:
- School closure announcements will be made via:
BBC Radio Humberside / Viking Radio / Minster FM / Capital FM / BBC Radio York / KC FM
- A text message will be sent to all parents/cares who are registered for the text messaging service.
- A notice will be placed on this webpage and also on the Council's website (click to be taken to the appropriate webpage)
- Parents/Carers are asked to collect their children from their classrooms where they would normally be dismissed in an afternoon.
All parents/carers MUST sign for their child at the point of collection
If you wish another party to collect your child you MUST telephone the school office to give permission for you child to do so. You will be asked some security questions relating to your child.
If your child normally walks home alone from school you MUST contact the school to give
permission for your child to do so. Again you will be asked some security questions.
NO CHILD WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE UNLESS WE HAVE A SIGNATURE AND/OR APPROPRIATE PERMISSION.
Children will be looked after by staff until collected.
