Adverse Weather

Occasionally adverse weather can affect school transport and in extreme cases, schools are unable to open at all. Where adverse weather is a concern, the following phone line will be kept up to date with the most recent news regarding school transport and closures.

The telephone number for our school is 0870 054 4999.
The pin number for Auchterellon School is 021250.

If pupils are not able to attend school due to adverse weather, it is important we ensure there are still meaningful and worthwhile learning opportunities for children to engage with at home.

On a “Snow Day,” pupils should access the Snow Zone by clicking the link below.  Pupils will need their Glow username and password.  Within the Snow Zone, there are many exciting learning opportunities for children and throughout the day, we will also try to use Glow collaboration tools so that we can communicate and share our learning.

Pupils should have their Glow username and password in the passwords page of their diaries.  Please contact the school if this needs to be reset.
