Hebden Bridge is prone to flooding. There have been a number of significant floods which have affected the school and the wider community:

  • June 2012
  • Boxing Day 2015 
  • February 2020. 

The school is adept at preparing for and clearing up flooding and we always endeavour to minimise impact on the children and families. 

As part of our emergency planning within school we have written a flood plan to provide a broad guideline should we be faced with flooding in the future.

We have also received some useful documents from the Local Authority which are on here to support with flooding.
