Our School

School Closure Information

What our school will do: 
  • We will send a text to all parents confirming any closure and arrangements.  This will also be put on the Home Page of this school website, on our Twitter and our Facebook page

  • We will contact via the Local Authority the local radio stations


For Health and Safety reasons, you need to ensure that your child and the school know exactly what you allow them to do if school has to close early in case of extreme weather conditions (or power failure etc.)

In some circumstances, it may not always be possible for your child to contact you before leaving school.  Therefore, it is essential that your child is aware of all the arrangements you have made.  If we do have to close early, updated information will appear on the Home Page of this school website, on our Twitter (https://twitter.com/FirValeSchool) and our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/firvalesch).

What you need to do as a Parent/Carer: 
  • Make sure our school has the correct mobile number for your child so you can receive a text message

    Check our Website

  • Follow us on Twitter and Facebook

  • You should also listen for announcements on BBC Radio Sheffield and Hallam FM and the Sheffield City Council website: https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/schoolclosures

Please note that radio stations have a policy of only announcing closures and will NOT announce if the school is re-opening.
