Severe Weather

If the decision is made not to open the school as a result of deteriorating conditions overnight information will be posted on the Kent County Council School Closures website.

www.kentclosures.co.uk

Parents are advised to register with this website to obtain free SMS updates on the school’s status.

In addition a notice will be put on our website and outside school as soon as possible.

The school telephone will be staffed as early as possible so that enquiries can be taken.

Local radio stations offer regular updates on school closures in periods of severe weather:

  • Radio Kent – 96.7 and 104.2 FM
  • Heart FM Radio Kent – 102.8 and 103.1 FM

If worsening weather conditions indicate that by 3.10pm 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 arrangements to make. 

The Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher,  or other authorised people will remain at school until parents have safely collected all children.
