Emergency School Closure Procedure
A decision to close school is only taken as a last resort and after conversations between the Headteacher, the Chair of Governors and the Caretaker. In reaching a decision many factors are considered, such as:
Heating availability and temperature inside school
Condition of water pipes in school and availability of running water
Condition of the immediate local roads
Ensuring the playground and paving around school can have secure, clear pathways to allow safe movement
Ability of adequate staff numbers to reach school
Closing school is only a last resort!
If school is closed, you will receive a message on Class Dojo and a text message. (PLEASE ENSURE YOUR UP TO DATE NUMBERS ARE HELD BY THE SCHOOL OFFICE TO RECEIVE SUCH A MESSAGE).
The school website will be updated on the homepage.
