Castle School will make every effort to stay open in the event of severe weather. However, in extreme cases we may have to close due to severe weather or due to any other emergency.

Information about any closures will be available from the following places:

  • Castle School website
  • Castle School Twitter and Facebook pages
  • The NCEA Trust website
  • Northumberland County Council website
  • Radio Newcastle – 95.4fm
  • Castle School reception telephone – 01670 844322
  • Notices will also be placed on the school gates

Castle School will also send a text to all parents/carers who have registered a mobile phone number as a preferred form of contact with the school. If you have not provided a mobile contact number, we would strongly advise you to do so.

We will endeavour to inform parents and carers of any closures as early as possible and for a morning closure by 8.00am at the latest.
