Reminder of School Closure Procedures

I would like to remind you of our School Closure Procedure.  If the school should be closed for example severe weather, the decision will be made by 7:15 in the morning. We will contact Pupil Transport at the Local Authority who will then contact you.  If not, we suggest that you contact the Driver/Passenger Assistant direct if you think there is any problem.  It will be important to make sure you have their relevant telephone number(s).  Please ask the Driver/Passenger Assistant for their telephone numbers if you do not already have these.   

School closures are also listed on the Cornwall Council website at

It will be your responsibility to contact any short break provider if this is relevant to your child and discuss with them arrangements for any planned visit/stay.  

If there should be snow, and it settles during the school day, we will need to close the school. We will make this decision as soon as we can to ensure the safety of the children.  We would contact you through our texting service in the first instance.  Please ensure you have notified the school office with any change of mobile number.  

As you will know the local weather can be quite unpredictable and ‘localised’.  If, following weather reports, you have concerns and feel you would rather keep your child at home please report their absence to school as normal (call Reception on 01726 812757) as early as possible.  

We will always do our best to keep the school open – but sometimes closure will be the most appropriate step to ensure everyone’s safety. 

 We understand that closures are frustrating, and we never take the decision to close lightly, but we must keep pupils and staff safety at the forefront of our decisions.

We will be guided by County advice and that of the emergency services. Please continue to monitor school social media pages, emails and our website as we will update on those as necessary.

Yours sincerely,  

Heidi Hoskin
