Minehead Middle School Strive for excellence

Adverse Weather Conditions

In the event of serious weather conditions such as heavy snow it may be necessary to close the school for the safety of pupils and staff.

Early morning decision:
  • If county transport is not running, school may still open for the children who live locally if we have enough staff.
  • If the decision is made to close the school we will notify the local radio stations and BBC Somerset - you can look on and we will post a message on this website and also on Twitter.

BBC Somerset 1566Mhz
Heart FM 102.6FM or 96.5FM

Bad weather during the day:
If the weather deteriorates during the day, school may close early. If this is the case then the following will happen:

  • School transport will be re-arranged. All parents who use school transport will be contacted to ensure that there will be someone at home to meet them.
  • Other parents will be contacted by phone to ask them to collect their children.
  • If parents cannot be contacted, we will keep the children at school until someone can pick them up.
Please ensure that the school office has up-to-date contact details for you.
