During periods of severe weather there may be school closures or disruption to your child’s home to school transport. In these circumstances do you know what to do? Here are some tips.
Listen to local Radio Stations …. mainly BBC Radio Newcastle 95.4FM, Sun FM and Metro Radio.
Go to the Metro Radio website: www.metroradio.co.uk/pages/school-closures/
In extreme cases the school may have to close during the day due to severe weather and your child will be sent home early. Do you have a procedure in place for the care of your child until you arrive?
Make arrangements with a relative or close friend to care for your child until you are able to get home.
Inform the school of these arrangements as it may be necessary for your child to seek alternative transportation from school.
Make sure the school has an 'In Case of Emergency' contact telephone number.
