Term dates

On extremely rare occasions, it may be necessary to close the school (dangerous weather for example). In this instance, all parents/carers would be contacted immediately after this decision had been made and information would be available on local websites or news sources. Other than on such occassions, school dates can be found below. It is vital that your child attends school everyday unless your child is ill or has a guaranteed absence.
