23rd January 2013
St Peter's is open today.
Can I assure you closing the school for any reason is always a last resort and done only in the interests of keeping all the children safe.
If St Peter’s is ever closed these are the various ways we keep parents informed and up-to-date:
I am pleased to let you know that we are now able to text you if the school is closed. If you do not receive a text we are open. Please make sure that the school has up to date details of your mobile number, as we have found that quite a number of parents had changed their mobile phone numbers and unfortunately not informed school.
The Learning platform and school website
The school’s learning platform adn website will be updated by 7:30am each morning. I will inform you if school is open or closed at http://clc2.uniservity.com/GroupHomepage.asp?GroupID=287031 and http://www.darwenstpeters.org.uk
105.4 Real, 100.4 Smooth and 103.9, 95.5, or 104.5 Lancashire and 107 the Bee radio stations presenters announce school closures and also have the information posted on their websites www.realradionorthwest.co.uk, www.smoothradionorthwest.co.uk http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/lancashire/hi/tv_and_radio , and http://www.thebee.co.uk/schools/bee-school-closures/
Facebook and Twitter
A new Facebook page has been designed to give teachers, parents and governors up-to-date information. This is an additional channel using social media technologies to help keep people informed. Everything from school closures, road closures and bin collections will be added to the site. Go to www.facebook.com/bwdwinter
