Snow closures

In case of bad weather please check with local radio and the Derbyshire County Council website regarding school closures.

Emergency Closure procedures

The decision to close the school will be made by the Headteacher and Governors.

A school closure will only happen in line with LA guidelines. In the event of a decision to close the school we will notify parents via text message and by posting a bulletin on the website.
