Emergency school closures and transport updates

In the event of a closure during the school day we may use a variety of methods to alert you:

It is essential that the school has up to date contact information for parents and carers to enable us to contact you directly by text.

Please contact your child's school to let them know of any changes to your details.

School transport updates will be posted

If a school is closed, we will also make information available on the school telephone answering machine where applicable.

Emergency closures outwith school hours will be posted on our current school closures page. We will also use social media where possible.

If your child’s school is open during the bad weather but you don’t think it is safe for them to travel, you are entitled to keep your child at home.

If the transport contractor is not operating, and you would still like your child to attend school, please let the school know about your alternative transport arrangements, and ensure your child is collected at the end of the day. 

For information on how we clear paths around schools during bad weather visit our winter gritting and snow clearing pages.

Information will also be available by calling ACCESSLine on 03452 777 778.
