How will we find out that school is closed?
If we have severe weather in the early hours of the morning we will try to make a decision about closing the school before 7am. If the buses say they can get children to school we will try to stay open. There may well be occasions when the decision to close is made later, say 8:30am, if we don’t have enough staff to cover the pupil numbers in the school. We will act as quickly as possible to put the closure information on our websites although this can be difficult to access when demand is very high.
The BBC Cumbria website usually lists closed schools and can cope with lots of hits. We will also contact the following broadcasters with the news:
BBC Radio Lancashire
BBC Radio Cumbria
Smooth Lake District Radio
