There may be occasions when it is necessary for Tatham Fells CE (VC) Primary School to close temporarily in the interests of health and safety to pupils and staff. In most cases this will be as a result of problems relating to the school building or heating, or because of severe weather conditions.
In the event of adverse weather conditions, parents and carers are asked to check for school closure by: checking School Spider notifications or checking for notification on the school website/LCC website.
If school continues to be closed after the first day then this information will be sent in a school spider email and a notification will be posted on the school/authority website.
If the Head Teacher and/or the Chair of Governors feel it is necessary, after due consideration, not to open the school, or to close the school early, every effort will be made to inform parents/carers and other agencies of the decision at the earliest opportunity.
In the event of an early closure, parents and carers will be notified by School spider then if necessary by telephone.
