Deyes High School always prioritises the learning of our students and we are committed to opening in all circumstances.
It is very unlikely that the school will ever have to close, and parents and students should assume the school remains open unless they hear otherwise.
However, in the event of severe weather conditions (very heavy snow) the school considers the safety and wellbeing of its students and staff with the utmost importance and any decision to close the school will be taken after all options and issues have been considered. The school will also take account of local and national weather forecasts and we may base our decision to close on these.

In all cases of school closure, due to severe weather conditions, we will immediately provide online learning via Microsoft TEAMS in the form of live lessons and supporting resources in the appropriate TEAMS channel. Students will be advised to follow their normal timetable in this way until the school can be safely reopened.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via SchoolSynergy.
