Mobile phones in school

Mobile phones are not allowed in school as they may get lost or broken.

If your child needs their phone for emergencies, they must be handed in to their class teacher at the start of the day and collected after school.

Snow closures

In case of bad weather we will initially send out messages via Parenthub and will put a notification on our website.  Please also check local radio and the Derbyshire County Council website regarding school closures.

Emergency Closure procedures

The decision to close the school will be made by the Headteacher and Governors.

A school closure will only happen in line with LA guidelines. In the event of a decision to close the school we will notify parents via text message and by posting a bulletin on the website.
