Adverse Weather Conditions
Our intention is to remain open whatever the weather. The school would only close if site conditions were dangerous, there is insufficient staff to ensure the health and safety of the students or if conditions are anticipated to become too hazardous.
Please make every effort to ensure that your child attends school and that they wear appropriate clothing and shoes for inclement weather; they may have to do some walking through snow to get to school and /or return home. If snow causes delay in arrival to school, we will hold registers open a little later so that pupils are not recorded as late. If the journey takes more time than usual, please do not worry – it is important that you and your child get here safely.
In the event of extreme weather conditions, notification of closure will be made available on our website, sent to parents via our text message service and broadcast through Radio Essex. It will also be announced on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Please always work on the principle that the school is open unless there is information to the contrary.
Mrs L Hamilton
