Arrangements for Emergency Closure

  Where the school has to close at very short notice because of circumstances such as failure of heating, adverse weather conditions etc. the following procedure will apply:

• The Head Teacher will make sure a parent or responsible adult is at home to receive the child

• Where School transport is provided, pupils will be allowed to use it only where there is absolute certainty that they will arrive home safely

• Seesaw will initially be used to inform parents of what action is to be taken. This will be followed by a telephone call where no Seesaw response has been received.

Parents should always use their best judgement when deciding whether to send or escort their children to school. In the interest of the health and safety of pupils and staff, it may be necessary during severe weather conditions to close this school. If this is to be done prior to the school opening, it will be announced on Radio Tay after 7.00 am.

Please note that, although as schools we have a direct number to Radio Tay, it often takes a considerable time for individual schools to get connected. Parents can also get information from:

• Perth and Kinross Council Information Line – 01738 475000 open between 8.45am and 5pm. Calls are charged at the local rate.
