Severe weather procedure
In the event of severe weather it is always our intention to keep the school open and as such the premises team will work to ensure that the site is both accessible and safe.
However, in circumstances of exceptional weather we may need to close the school. If we have to do so, we will communicate with the families via our school website, Twitter feed, Edulink app and a text message.
We will also notify Wakefield Council who maintain their school closure web page, from which local Ridings FM read out lists of closed schools.
Parents are advised to check the school information sources if in doubt. If no closure messages have been provided, parents should assume Kettlethorpe High School is open as usual.
