School Closures in an Emergency
Bowes will remain open in all but the most extreme circumstances. The Headteacher will judge the severity of the emergency or bad weather and decide whether it is safe for both staff and pupils to travel to and be on the school premises. A decision will be made at the earliest possible time and communicated with all parties as soon as possible.
In the event of a decision being taken to close the school within short notice, the school will contact staff and parents by phone via text message. The school website will also be updated to alert everybody to the school closure.
