Adverse Weather/Alternative Day Protocol

 School to start at 10.00am and follow a revised school day, as detailed:


School Day












Period 2






Period 3






Break, including lunch for those entitled to free school meals






Period 4, including registration






Period 5






School finishes




  • Students to leave for school having consumed a substantive breakfast.
  • Avoiding a lunch period ensures that less water, ice, snow etc. is brought into the buildings, thus ensuring health & safety is kept as high as possible.
  • The early finish allows for students to travel home slowly and safely, and in full light; this also provides an opportunity for the Site Team to make the school ready for the next day (potentially, before things ice/frost over etc.)
  • Where appropriate, staff will be allowed to leave at 2.30pm to ensure they travel home safely in daylight.
