There may be occasions when we have to send students home during the school day. This can be due to a variety of reasons including (and not limited to):

  • Bad weather
  • Power disruption
  • Outbreaks of illness or disease.

Decisions about closing the school or sending students home early are always difficult to make.

We need to gather reliable information before making a judgement. We check weather reports, get advice from the bus, rail and other relevant transport companies and try to assess what is happening elsewhere in the area. We may also take guidance from the Local Authority and Public Health teams. Some transport may not be available.

The decision to close school will be made by the Headteacher in consultation with site staff and the Chair of Governors.

Information relating to the closure will be communicated via:

  • The school social media pages: @TeamPrenton
  • ParentMail
