Emergency Closure Procedure 



Wherever possible, we open our school at times when weather warnings are issued. We are very conscious of the impact that school closure can have on families and young people if we make the decision to close the school.  

At a point when weather warnings are issued, the school follows a number of procedures to ensure that it is appropriate to open. 

Factors considered include:

  • Access routes to the school for both staff and students. (With many students travelling by bus, we need to take into account whether the bus companies are planning to offer a normal service)
  • The weather forecast and conditions at the time
  • The safety of the school site

We provide parents with as much notice as possible. Our website (www.picknalls.staffs.sch.uk) is regularly updated during periods of poor weather.

We also put notification about closure on our on Twitter page and we send a text message to parents (first priority) through Teachers2Parents. 

Radio Stoke and Radio Derby will be contacted, please tune in to be kept fully informed.

The Staffordshire County Council School Closure list will be updated.

Parents can sign up on the Staffordshire County website for free email or text message alerts.

If a decision is made to open the site following the initial checks, this decision will be reviewed throughout the day as factors may change. If at any point we are forced to close during the school day, we will make every effort to ensure parents are notified quickly and young people and staff can leave the school and return home safely. 

These judgments are always difficult and we appreciate your patience and support at these times.
