Snow Closures

Even in extreme weather, we will always endeavour to remain open. The main priority will always be the safety of our children and staff and we would never ask put our school community at risk. If it is not safe to open, we will not do so. 


Should there be a need to close the school, we will inform you initially by text, on our school website and on Calderdale Council’s website -


When we update Calderdale’s website it triggers an automated email to BBC Radio Leeds and the Pulse radio who regularly read out the names of school’s affected. Please DO NOT telephone school for confirmation, as we will be busy putting plan and arrangements in place.
