Bad Weather Procedures

In the event of disruption caused by bad weather, the prime concern of Pennine Magpie is the safety of students. We will always endeavour to open in the event of bad weather, as long as it is safe to do so.

If you have the responsibility of getting students to and from Pennine Magpie, students should be handed over directly to a member of staff. Please ensure any student you bring in is able to get home safely. If traveling in by taxi, drivers should be advised to do the same.

If there is considerable weather disruption, we may have to close the centre and send students home. We would then ask you to make arrangements for them to be picked up.

For students who are picked up by Pennine Magpie, it may not be possible to pick up or drop off students, or it may become necessary to bring them home earlier for safety.

If there is any disruption to service, we will inform you via our Facebook page, website and text alert.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the floods. Stay safe.
