Adverse Weather Conditions
If we need to close the school due to adverse weather conditions the following procedures will be used to inform parents/carers:
1. A decision will be made about school closure by 07.00. This decision will be based on health and safety grounds, which may include not having enough staff at school to supervise our pupils.
2. The County Council’s website will list our school closure: http://www.buckscc.gov.uk
3. MIX 96 will be contacted and should announce our school closure at regular intervals throughout the morning.
If the notices listed above have not been implemented then you should assume that the school will remain open.
With these methods of communication in place, there should be no need for parents to telephone the school asking whether we will be open or closed.
Should the school open but need to close earlier than 15.15, parents/carers will be contacted via text or telephone. Please ensure that we always have up-to-date contact details.
Please be assured that school closure will always be a last resort.
It is entirely the responsibility of the parent/carer to decide whether it is safe to travel to and from school in inclement weather and we respect the choices that you make. As usual please inform the school by telephone or in writing if your child will be absent from school.
