Adverse weather

Given that our students come from across a large rural area, we work hard to ensure that families are advised early about any changes to school opening because of adverse weather conditions. We will do our best to monitor the weather and any changes to bus routes and closures in Derbyshire.

Only in the event of school closure we will inform parents and carers by 7am:


Closing school when it is open but weather worsens

We will look at the weather and transport information and, if we decide to close the school, we will inform parents and carers:

In the event of early closure we will ensure that students are kept on the school site and supervised in the hall or dining hall until they are able to travel home. 

Before the next day we will send another update to parents and carers about arrangements for the following day using the communication methods listed above.


Keeping up with school work

While the school is closed, students can keep up to date with their work by using the Remote Learning page of this website.
