Extreme weather procedure
Procedures in the event of severe weather
In all cases of extreme weather, the school will, if at all possible, remain open.
- In the event of, for example, significant overnight snow, we will place information on the website under Latest News before 7.00am. We will also communicate with parents via Twitter and the Kent closures website - www.kentclosures.co.uk
- If in doubt, your first port of call should be the website, rather than telephoning the school.
- Though the school is highly likely to remain open in the event of snow, we do understand that for some the journey to school could be difficult and hazardous, and we appreciate parents’ judgements in such circumstances. However please do contact the school if your son is going to be absent, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Direct Dial to the Attendance Officer - 01892 578114
- If the weather deteriorates (eg heavy snow) during the school day, our aim will be to complete the school day. Again, in such circumstances check the website/Twitter. The school will decide whether pupils should go home: please do not rely on a phone call or text from your son!
- Accessing work: for pupils unable to get to school, we will leave work assignments on FROG, our virtual learning environment.
