Children In Need

Thank you for your support

We are delighted to say that our school community raised a huge £325.92

School Closure as a Result of Severe Adverse Weather Conditions

As we are approaching the winter months with a chance of possible severe adverse weather conditions, please read the school’s procedures below should the need to close the school arise. 

The decision to close the school at short notice due to severe adverse weather conditions is a very difficult one, but I am sure you will all agree that issues of Health and Safety must be considered and the adequate staffing and the number of qualified First Aiders on site to ensure the proper supervision of the pupils is paramount. 

Thanking you for your continuing support over this issue.

To support parents with the earliest notification as possible of school closure under such circumstances, the school will undertake the following by 7.45 am:

  1. Message to parents via school Text Messaging Service.
  2. Post a notice on our School’s Website 
  3. Inform the Newport Website and Capital FM Website  

      Newport Website: www.newport.gov.uk

      Capital FM Website:  www.capitalfm.com

  1. Place notices on the school gates

We also ask parents to support other parents by informing friends who don’t have access to the internet with information regarding school closures.
