School closure due to Adverse Weather
It is once again the time of year when we enter a period of what is likely to be unsettled and adverse weather.
Adverse weather conditions cause all of us problems and the impact on running a school can be significant. Critical factors taken into account when deciding to remain open or to close include road conditions, safety of the site and staff/pupil ratios.
It may well be the case that an occurrence of adverse weather leads to an early morning decision whether to close the school. The responsibility for school closure rests with the Local Authority (LA) for maintained schools such as Thorpe. However, because of the variation in geography and climate throughout the district, it is normal for the Headteacher to make an individual school closure decision. This decision will be based on a health and safety assessment (both for members of staff and pupils); the LA and the Headteacher will keep the school open if at all possible. Only in exceptional circumstances will the school be closed. If weather conditions are such that the school makes a decision to close before the normal school day starts, then instruction will be given to publish notification between 7.00am and 7.30am in the following ways:
- Notification of closure through a text sent via ParentMail
- An update via Twitter – @ThorpeBradford
- An update on the Bradford Schools Online website – https://bso.bradford.gov.uk/Schools/Home.aspx
- A school closure message on local radio stations
If weather conditions are such that a decision to close is taken during normal school hours, then all parents/carers who have provided us with mobile telephone contact details will be informed by text. Some staff will remain in school to supervise pupils until they are able to get home. As you can appreciate, we attempt to ensure we can deal effectively with weather conditions and circumstances arising from this that are beyond our control and I trust you feel reassured that we will do all we can
