Emergency school closure procedures

Dear Parents and Carers,


As colder weather approaches, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of our emergency closure procedures as well as some alterations to our entrances into school in a morning if the weather is icy. 


When the playground is deemed as being too icy for the children to cross safely first thing in a morning, we will be using the old nursery gate entrance which is situated at the front of school instead. A member of staff will be on the gate to greet the children as they come into school and the children will be directed through the downstairs classroom and up the stairs in order to make their way to their classroom. Parents are still very welcome to accompany the younger children into school when this entrance is being used.


Any decision to close school is taken in association with the Chair of Governors. In the event of an emergency school closure, you will be notified via the following three ways:

  1. A text message from school
  2. An email via
  3. A message on the school's Facebook page

We will repeat these communications on each subsequent day of closure. Please note, occasionally there can be difficulty in utilising one of the communication methods listed above, so we advise parents and carers to check more than one.


If we do have to close school during the school day, we will alert you to this via the same means listed above. If your contact numbers or email addresses change, please let us know so we can update our system. 


Thank you for your continued support and we hope that these measures will rarely be necessary.


Best wishes,

Mrs E Bond
