Emergency Closure and Severe Weather

Emergency Closure and Severe Weather

Should the school be closed suddenly in an emergency parents/carers will be sent a text message, so please ensure we always have your current mobile number.


If worsening weather conditions indicate that by 3.15 pm children and staff may have difficulty getting home, every attempt will be made to contact you to come and collect children from school.


If you anticipate difficulties collecting your children later in the day due to weather conditions, please come early and collect children from school or telephone us to let us know what arrangement to make. Needless to say, the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or other authorised people will remain at school until all children have been safely collected by their parents.


If the decision is made not to open the school as a result of deteriorating conditions overnight, parents will be notified that the school is closed using the school texting service. Local radio will be notified and information will be broadcast, and posted on the websites of Heart FM Radio and BBC Radio Kent. There is also a KCC school closure website which can be found at:
