Emergency School Closure arrangements

Posted by on Jan 14, 2015 in Announcements, Events, News | 0 comments

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:

  • BBC Radio Shropshire ( BBC Radio Shropshire 96FM)

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.

  •  Text Messaging

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.

7 November 2014

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.


Just as a reminder, if parents have an issue they need to raise with school, the following procedure may be of use:


Primary parent Secondary parent
Initial contact with Class teacher Initial contact with Tutor
If issue remains unresolved, Assistant Head Primary If issue remains unresolved, Head of Phase
If issue remains unresolved, Head of School If issue remains unresolved, Assistant Head Pastoral or Deputy Head teaching & learning/progress
If issue remains unresolved, Head of School


Speaking to your child’s primary class teacher

In the morning class teachers are preparing for the day and settling pupils for learning. If you wish to speak to the teacher please either phone or call into the school recepton and they will get a message to the teacher who will telephone you at the earliest opportunity.



Review Day – Secondary

Just a reminder that Review day for secondary students and parents in on 20 November. Normal lessons are replaced with extended appointments with tutors. Letters have been sent home to invite you to select an appointment time.


Last day of term is Friday 19 December. School will close at 2pm. There will not be an after school club on this day.



As previously communicated, most letters that do not require a reply are sent out via e mail and placed on the school website. Hard copies will be available in the glass foyer of the main reception. Please contact school with any updated e mail addresses.



Yours faithfully


Sue Lovecy
