Bad Weather Advice for Parents

School will be closed only in extreme conditions or when insufficient staff are able to get to school.


If the weather is snow or overnight

As soon as the decision is made to either close the school or to remain open a message will be sent via email and text using the contact information you have provided. A message will also be put on the school Facebook page. Announcements will be made on Radio Cornwall, Pirate FM and Heart FM, a list of schools closed is also available on the Cornwall Council website - see link below. 


Please do not ring the school – we need to keep the lines clear for emergencies.

Only bring your child to school if you think it is safe to do so

Please let us know you are unable to get your child to school, either by e-mail ( or by calling the school absence mailbox on 01726 822546 - option 1.


If your child has been pre-booked into breakfast club, please remember to cancel via Parentpay.  Please also remember to cancel any school meals ordered for the day.


If you are unable to get in first thing in the morning, but the weather improves later in the day, children should come to school as soon as it is safe to do so. Registration will be held open for those children who come in late.


If the weather deteriorates during the day

If we decide to close the school an email and text message will be sent to parents to ask them to collect their children from school. We will also post on our Facebook page. If you have contact with other parents, it would be of great help if you could ‘spread the word’ so that children can be collected as quickly as possible. Please do not ring the school as we need to keep the lines clear to contact parents and the appropriate authorities.


If the weather worsens where you live and you consider it may be unsafe to wait until the end of the school day please come and collect your child straight away (there is no need to call school beforehand). If you have any doubts please come and collect your child, as being safe is our prime concern.
