Bad weather and unplanned school closure

Very rarely there may be a school closure due to snow or ice, or due to other reasons beyond our control, eg mains water burst.

If at all possible, we will try to keep the school open, but we may have to take action to ensure we can maintain proper standards of Health and Safety. In these matter we will make a descision based on common sense and by following local authority guidance.

In the event of closure will endeavor to notify parents by

  • A message on this website - this will display on a banner at the top of the homepage

  • Via the school Twitter page (please make sure you follow @Bidstonvillage)

  • Via the Classdojo messaging system (if you have signed up to it)

  • Via the local media eg Radio Merseyside, Heart FM, Radio City

  • Via Local newspaper websites eg Liverpool Echol, Wirral Globe

  • Via

If you have learned of a school closure, and you are sure it's accurate, please inform other parents you may have contact with.

We will always make regular updates on Twitter and on the School website.
