Closing school is not an easy option and one that we are reluctant to do. Should the buses be unable to travel along School Lane, this makes our decision to close school an easy one; if buses and school transport deem the area to be unsafe we would not want parents, children and staff contemplating travelling to school.
Last year we had an excellent system that meant everybody was well informed and we will repeat this again if we have to close, this was:
A decision is made with the bus companies (normally by 6 am) and any school notifications will now be sent using our text/email messaging service to parents as soon as possible. I will also contact the website (www.marton.cheshire.sch.uk) to post a message to parents informing them school is closed on that day. Please can you inform the school office of any changes to mobile phone numbers or email addresses.
Following this, we will contact local radio stations (Silk and Signal FM) to report school closed for their school bulletins that are made regularly.
Should parents need to contact M.A.D. House (before and after school club) they can be contacted on 07538227999.
- Please can we encourage parents to not ring school as we cannot answer all calls in the morning and staff may not be present at school
- If the weather deteriorates during an afternoon we will inform parents that school would more than likely be closed the next day.
