Term Dates and School Closure Information




The decision to close school is not taken lightly. It is based on many factors, not just whether there is snow or not. A thorough risk assessment of the site is completed, for example looking at risk of falls, as well as looking at staffing levels in the school. As not all staff live locally, their ability to get to and from school can be seriously affected, which can impact on our ability to ensure the children are safe when in our care. All decisions are also discussed with the Trust CEO. We understand a closure can impact on working patterns for our families, so we do our best to remain open. However, we will not open if we consider the risk to the children or our families too high, and endeavour to give as much notice as we can.

School Closure

Open Check is a service used to publicise School Closures as a result of adverse weather conditions or other emergencies.


Simply follow this link and select the school using the drop down menu. Information on any closures will be displayed.


You can also check the status of the school by calling (020) 8408 7508 and entering in the school code:


·         Northumberland Heath - 303 2081

·         Peareswood – 303 2029

·         Willow Bank – 303 2020


Please remember that these contacts will only be used at times when extreme weather conditions or emergencies necessitate closure and therefore a high volume of calls may cause delays.
