How We Do Things

At St. Ambrose Barlow we aim to do things differently. This means that we prepare our students for life, work and learning after school. We are involved in the latest educational research, in partnerships with universities and businesses and have a strong alliance with other schools thanks to our Teaching School status. Pupils entering school now can expect to live long lives, enjoy varied careers of over 20 different jobs and will face some significant challenges. The world changes fast and we believe our school needs to keep up. That's why we do things differently.

School Closure Procedure – Severe Weather

In the event of a severe weather warning being issued the decision to close school will only be taken in exceptional circumstances.

We will ensure that parents are informed of the decision to close school as early as possible.

Information will be published on our school website and we have a communication system that will enable us to send text messages and emails to parents/carers. Local radio stations will also be informed of school closures and regularly updated where necessary.

In the event that school does remain open and we find that conditions deteriorate through the school day presenting a risk of harm or injury we may have to decide to close school early.

We will update the school website and send text messages and emails informing parents/carers as soon as possible.
