School Closures


Each day of any severe weather, the Head Teacher will make an assessment about whether it is safe and practical to open the school to pupils. This decision will be made early in the morning in enough time to inform you if we are to close.

You will be informed by text if the school is to close. If you do not hear anything from us the school will be open.


Should you wish to check reports of closure, you can do so by visiting the council website where you will find up-to-date information. Closure information will also be shared with the local radio and TV stations for them to use as they wish in their bulletins. You can also check on weather and gritting updates at twitter.com/Kirkleeswinter.

Please be assured that we will only decide to close our school in exceptional circumstances where the safety of your child(ren) is the primary concern. Occasionally, this may be due to the availability of teaching staff that travel some distance to reach school, rather than purely conditions for pupils getting to school.

In the event of severe weather please also check the BBC weather forecast online on weather updates
