OpenCheck allows you to check the status of your children’s school on any given day. This easy-to-use service presents information regarding school closures in case of emergency, severe weather or any news which may affect children’s ability to attend or access the school.

OpenCheck is also available via ParentComms: a mobile app available for all popular smart phones, ensuring that parents and carers have a choice of options on how to be kept up to date.

Emergency School Closure at short notice

In the event of very bad weather, the decision to close the school will be taken after great care and consideration. We will only close the school if it is absolutely necessary.
In the event of any school closure at short notice we will contact the class representatives for each class who will notify all parents via the class whatsapp parent groups.

The school will also update Opencheck to notify that the school is closed. Here is the link to the opencheck website: https://opencheck.atomwide.com/default.aspx
