The decision to close the school due to bad weather is taken in the interest of the safety and welfare of pupils, staff and school transport staff. If the school has to close due to adverse weather, we will inform you in different ways depending when/what time the school closes.
Adverse weather overnight
If the weather forces the school to remain closed on any particular morning, all parents and carers will be contacted via SMS messaging. Carmarthenshire County Council Website will also be up-dated as well as the School Website. The School will also use local radio services to inform you from early in the morning.
Adverse weather occurring during the school day
If the weather becomes bad during the working day meaning that the school will close early we will contact all parents/carers via SMS message. The school can monitor who has received the message and for those that haven’t received it, the school will then contact you directly. The decision to get children home early and safely may also be taken by school transport for the safety of their staff as road conditions deteriorate, in which case the bus companies will also contact parents directly. No child will be left in school or unattended at home.
