Severe Weather

In the event of severe weather, it may be necessary to make the decision to close the school. In the event of a school closure, details will be placed on the school closure section of the Flintshire website.

There are occasions when it becomes necessary to send pupils home due to inclement weather conditions. When this happens, we will send you a message via eMail or SZapp and also post the information on the school website.
