Clipston Endowed VC Primary School

School Closure Arrangements

In the event of inclement weather (or disruption to domestic services such as water supply) we may need to close the school. This decision is made by the Headteacher, as soon as possible in the morning. The decision to close the school e.g. due to heavy snowfall is not taken lightly but must as always take into account the health and safety of both pupils and staff.

Parents will be notified by text and a message will also be left on the School’s Phone. The school will also notify the Local Authority and parents can view this information online at:

If you are unable to access the website the following radio stations will be reporting the closure:
BBC Radio Northampton – 104.2 & 103.6 FM

A message will also be placed on Facebook and Twitter.
