As we enter the winter months it is timely to remind all parents of the procedure should the school close due to adverse weather or another emergency.
The decision to close the school is never taken lightly. The Head of School makes the decision following a detailed review of health and safety for students and staff travelling to and from school and the safety of students in school. If the decision is made prior to 7.30am there are a number of ways that parents will be informed:
Closure decisions will be communicated immediately to BBC Radio Shropshire via Shropshire Council who in turn will inform the other local radio stations, and you are advised to stay tuned for announcements and updates.
We will put a message regarding any school closure onto the school website.
School will send a text message to parents using our current text message/email provider ‘call parents’. It is important that school has up to date contact details for each student.
If the decision to close the school is made part way through the school day, again we will post a message on the school website, text parents and allow students the opportunity to contact parents from school.Read More

Dear parent /carer
Thank you to all the parents and students who attended the recent School Opening event and Open Evening; I am sure many of you will have read the super news reports in both the Advertizer and the Shropshire Star documenting these events and others.
I am delighted to announce the following staff appointments:
Joining us as Assistant Head in our Primary phase is Carol Jones. Many of you will already know Carol; she joins us in January following her time at Gobowen School where she is currently the deputy head following a long secondment as the acting headteacher. Carol has strong connections to our school and community and will be a real asset to our team.
Alex McKinnon joins us from Church Stretton School as our Head of Mathematics.
Appointed to Head of English is Rhian Phoenix; Rhian has worked at the school for many years and will now lead the department.
Phase Managers have been appointed and I welcome Zoe Mottershaw and John Holmes to these exciting roles. Primarily, these roles will focus on pastoral issues as well as ensuring students make required progress across all their subjects.
