Perth and Kinross Council Customer Service Centre

(Available from 08:00hours to 18:00hours however this line may operate from 07:00 hours in exceptional weather) Parents/Carers should dial 0845 3011100 (calls are charged at the local rate) or 01738 475000 (main Council line).

Every effort will be made to keep our school open up to the point that doing so would involve unreasonable risk.  When the school is open, parents will need to use their own judgement based on conditions where they live as to whether it is safe to send their children to school or not.  If you keep your child at home please contact the school as soon as possible to let us know.

In the event of a school closure, parents will be informed via a phone call and email. The school website will also be updated as will the school's Twitter account. If we have to close the school whilst pupils are at school we will keep all children in school until we have contacted parents to come and collect them. 

Please ensure you have given us up to date telephone contact numbers for you and your emergency contacts.
