School Closure Procedures

We try to give as much warning as possible if the school has to be closed for any reason, but decisions to close often have to be taken at the last minute. We hope that closures will not be necessary and the school can remain open, but if school has to be closed the following procedures will be put into action.

Please check the home page of the school website which will be updated with an announcement before we send out School Gateway notifications. 

The school will contact BBC Three Counties Radio (103.8FM/ 95.5FM or 630MW / 1161MW) or Jack FM previously Hertbeat FM (106.7 106.9FM) as soon as possible so that the closure can be added to their Snowline lists.

Texts and emails will be sent to parents who have signed up to our School Gateway email and texting service.

A notice will be posted on the school gate as soon as possible.

Parents who are not signed up to School Gateway should ring the school but after 8.15am as there may not be anyone available before that time.

BREAKFAST CLUB will not run if school is closed. A decision to close will be made as early as possible and hopefully before Breakfast Club starts.
