Shepley First School

Emergency Closure

Each day of any severe weather, I as headteacher will make an assessment about whether it is safe and practical to open the school to pupils. This decision will be made early in the morning, in enough time to inform you if we are to close.

You will be informed by text/twitter and through the website if the school is to close to your child/ren each day. If you do not hear anything from us, the school will be open. Should you wish to check reports of closure, you can do so by visiting either our school website or the council website www.kirklees.gov.uk/schoolclosures  where you will find up-to-date information or follow them attwitter.com/kirkleesschools. Closure information will also be shared with the local radio and TV stations for them to use as they wish in their bulletins. You can also check on weather and gritting updates at www.kirklees.gov.uk/winter or follow them at twitter.com/kirkleeswinter.

Please be assured that the decision to close our school in exceptional circumstances where the safety of your child/ren is the primary concern. On occasion this may be due to the availability of teaching staff who travel some distance to reach school, rather than purely conditions for pupils getting to school.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you would like to receive information and school updates via our text messaging service, please make sure Mrs Murray is informed of any changes to mobile numbers.
