School policy for severe weather

School policy for severe weather

With the weather turning colder and the forecast for this weekend, 9th/10th December, remaining uncertain with snow predicted in some areas, we thought it is worth reminding what the RGS policy is if conditions are severe enough for the school to close.

If the school is not open on a morning, we will inform local radio and TV stations (and other news outlets) as well as post on our own website and social media channels. We will also attempt to contact all parents via text and email that the school is closed - please note this can be a lengthy process due to the sheer volume of messages being sent. 

You can find the School closure or early finish policy within our policies section. Please familiarise yourself with the arrangements.
