Macclesfield College Snow Procedure

As weather forecasts are predicting snow and very cold weather conditions we thought it would be helpful to remind students, parents and carers of the college’s procedure in advance of any forthcoming bad weather.

If overnight snowfalls are so heavy as to seriously disrupt traffic or cause journeys to be dangerous, or we have any concern over health and safety due to the college’s large site, it may be necessary to close the college.

Where possible we will always aim to keep the college open, however, the safety of our staff and students is our priority.

If a decision is made to close the college please consider the following communication points:

  • Our College website 
  • Social media sites, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook
  • Regular announcements on local radio Cheshire’s Silk 106.9  and Signal 1

If no announcements are made, then please assume we are open for business as usual.
