Severe weather arrangements

Wet Weather Arrangements

In wet weather pupils do not go out during breaks and at lunchtime. However, as supervision during these periods is limited, it is especially important that they exercise good behaviour. Children having school lunches remain in school during wet weather but again, supervision is limited. Children who go home for lunch should, where possible, return as late in the lunchtime as possible.

Unexpected Closures

In the event of an emergency, such as a power cut or severe weather, that prevents schools from opening in the morning or results in an early closure a range of communications channels are used to let parents know.

We have a text messaging option should any of the above emergencies occur. A message will be sent to every parent/carer for whom we have a current mobile number.

In addition, announcements will be made on Radio Forth (Forth 1 and Forth 2) and via the Council’s corporate Twitter account and Facebook page If many schools are affected, or the situation is likely to be prolonged, then the Council’s website
