Whilst we endeavour never to have to close, there are occasions from time to time where this is the safest option for the safety of our staff and students, for example in extreme weather conditions.
Currently, if the school needs to close for the day you will be alerted via email initially. Where possible we will post messages on our website and social media pages and if possible someone will be in the building to answer the phones if it is safe to do so. You should also listen to local BBC Radio Tees who will announce school closures.
The local authority also publishes a list in cases of extreme weather to help parents keep best informed of a situation.
