In the event of bad weather (if the school or college is open),the transport provider will decide whether to operate, depending upon:
- the weather conditions at the time
- the weather forecast up to 9am and for the remainder of the day
- the location of the route and the operator’s base
- and conditions at the school or college.
Parents/students should check the position with the transport provider or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If bad weather prevents school or college transport from operating in the morning, no return service will operate in the afternoon even if the weather improves. In these cases, if parents/carers take students to the school or college then it is their responsibility to transport the students home at the end of the day, or earlier if the school or college closes due to worsening weather conditions.
The decision to close a school is taken by the Headteacher, following a risk assessment that is based on a number of factors. This decision has to be taken without knowing exactly how the weather will progress during the day.
Information on individual school and college closures due to bad weather will be posted on the Isle of Anglesey County Council website at the earliest opportunity and announcements will be made on Môn FM. Please also see individual school websites.
