I would like to take the opportunity of reminding you of arrangements should the weather deteriorate in the winter months.
The school will not close unless conditions are extremely severe overnight or deteriorate rapidly during the day (e.g. heavy snowfall).
The school will close only in the following circumstances:
- If there is a central decision made to close by the Local Authority
- If the Principal and Governors decide to close the school due to deteriorating weather or unforeseen circumstances, for instance burst pipes or heating failure.
The decision to close will be announced on local radio stations as early as possible. The decision will also be published on our website www.holyheadschool.com If the school has already opened for the day it may be necessary to send students home early. It would be very helpful if you could make provisional arrangements in case this should happen and make sure that your child understands them.
The following radio stations will be alerted of school closure:
Free Radio – 96.4FM
BBC Radio WM – 95.6FM
Heart FM – 100.7FM
Capital Radio – 102.2FM
Thank you for your support.
