In the event of snow, Lawefield Primary will try to operate as normal, however, if there are insufficient staff who have been able to reach school, the school will be closed for the day.
In the event of a snow closure, the school will send a text message to inform parents/carers. It is important that you provide us with the correct mobile number so that we are able to keep you informed. We will also display this on our school website with an alert which will appear across the top of the webpage. In addition to the school closure being announced on our website, the headteacher will notify Radio Leeds, which is on 92.4FM and Wakefield Council who will display this information on their website. Please see the link below:

Please bear in mind that if you try ringing the school and there is no reply, it is worth visiting both these websites as well as listening on 94.2 FM to see whether our school is on the closure list.
Please note that we always do our best to grit the main pathways on the site but this does not extend to our staff carpark, as we have to prioritise the key areas in situations of this kind. Please take particular care if you are driving in this area.
