Bad Weather

At Glenmere we will try our best to inform Parents and Carers about any closures, including those caused by snow.

If you’ve not done so already, we encourage you to sign up for text message alerts, which are offered by Glenmere (providing we have electricity!).

To do this, visit the Office and provide your latest mobile phone number.

We also encourage parents to keep up-to-date with any closure details by checking this Website and listening to local radio.

The decision to close a school is taken by each Head Teacher rather than the council. Head Teachers have to weigh up a number of factors including the local weather conditions, pupil safety and the staff numbers before making a decision.

Schools are not obliged to alert the council to closures but a list should also be available on the BBC Leicester Website and other local radio Websites.

To view information about school closures on the Leicestershire County Council Website, which includes a list of local radio station frequencies and Website links, please visit the link below.
