The school gates re-open at 2:55pm and children are collected at 3:00pm. The school site is closed at 3:10pm.

After school clubs run throughout the week.




In the event of School closure due to heavy snow/bad weather a decision will be made and the outcome will be published on the Home page of our School website
Procedure for School Closure – see our School website or ParentMail
Now we are in the winter months we would like to remind you of the procedure for closing our school in the event of bad weather. Whilst we make every effort to keep the school open, there are occasions when it is not safe for children and staff to travel to and attend school. Please do not ring school as staff may not be in the office - you can find out if our school is closed by:


Visiting the Council’s website www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/closures for a list of school closures.
If you have already signed up for free text and email alerts on the Milton Keynes Council website you should also receive a text/email if we are closed. To sign up for this service simply log on to the above website and enter your email address and mobile phone number to receive future alerts of closures.


Listen to Heart Radio or BBC Three Counties Radio or visit their websites www.heartmk.co.uk or www.bbc.co.uk/threecounties
If you visit the Council or radio websites, it is crucial to press Refresh or the F5 button to continually refresh your screen as details of the school closures in Milton Keynes will constantly be updated. Please be aware that these websites can be difficult to access on these occasions because of the high demand of people wanting to use them.
