Breakdown of essential school services

These arrangements are for both Lindley C E Infant and Lindley Junior Schools

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY

It is a rare event for the school to be closed on a normal school day. It can happen if there is a breakdown of essential services such as heating failure, no water or electricity supply.

Breakdown of essential services:
Where possible any closure will be notified to parents by text and letter the previous afternoon.
Children will never be sent home early without notice, we will always keep children here until they are collected.
As far as possible, parents will be contacted by telephone and/or text and asked to collect children.
In the event of an overnight breakdown you will be informed of closure at the school gates the next morning, and asked to take the children home.
The message on the answer phone will be changed to confirm the closure and announce the re-opening of the school.
We will try to have the closure announced on Radio Leeds and The Pulse. We will also publish information on the website.
