If severe weather occurs this winter we will do our utmost to keep the school open. However if it is not possible to do so then the procedure is that we will inform CfM and BBC Radio Cumbria immediately if the school is closed, so please listen to their breakfast broadcasts on these days (school closures are also listed on the BBC's local news site - In addition we will also try to post a message here.

If for some reason the school was forced to close during the school day then we will initially use the text messaging service and then follow up by ringing the emergency contact numbers that we have. As a consequence it is of vital importance that you make sure that we have up to date contact numbers on our school data system.
