School Closure

Cornwall Council asks schools to remind parents about the procedure for closing schools should this be necessary, either due to bad weather or an emergency.

  • We try to make the decision to close the school as early as possible around 7:15am.
  • We will send a text to parents as well as an email - please note the ‘sender’ will be eSchools (the company that host our website).
  • A message will be posted on our website.
  • Please listen to local radio stations - sometimes though, the authorisation email sent through to County which gets passed onto the radio stations can be delayed, particularly if they are overwhelmed with a lot of schools closing.
  • Alternatively, you can log onto: and click on Education and Learning > Schools and Colleges > Current School Closures.
  • If we have to close early (when children are already at school), we will post a message on our website, email parents registered and/or telephone you directly. Please rest assured, children will remain supervised until all have been collected.

School closures are a rare occurrence and we will continue to do everything possible to remain open as long as it is safe to do so.
