Unexpected closures


In the event of an emergency, such as Covid, a power cut or severe weather, that prevents schools from opening in the morning or results in an early closure a range of communications channels are used to let parents know.  At Ratho we will use email, our school website and twitter account (@Ratho_Primary) to update you as soon as possible.  In addition, announcements will be made on Radio Forth (Forth 1 and Forth 2) and via the Council’s corporate Twitter account (@Edinburgh_CC) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/edinburghcouncil). If many schools are affected, or the situation is likely to be prolonged, then the Council’s website (https://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/schoolclosures) will also be used.
