Should the weather seriously deteriorate, children can be collected from school early but please be reassured that staff will always ensure children are safe if parents/carers are held up in the snow. It is not necessary to ring school if you wish to collect your child early because of inclement weather.
Information about school closures will be posted on Calderdale’s website (which automatically links to local radio) http://www.calderdale.gov.uk/education/closures/
Please also look at the school’s website where we try to post information quickly about the conditions on Shelf Hall Lane. Please note that these are the only sites we use. We would also alert parents and carers via text so it is important that the office has parents’/carers’ current mobile number and also email addresses.
Please also note that in particularly icy/snowy weather, only the lower entrance gate (by Class 3, not the ‘garden’ entrance gate) is open to allow for gritting paths. We also ask that parents/carers ensure children are using the gritted routes across the playground.
