Severe Winter Weather Procedures

We will always do our utmost to keep the school open and if you have not heard anything please assume that we are operating as usual.

The school will only close if we have insufficient staff to supervise children or if there are health and safety issues.

Mrs Penfold will consult with staff members in the early morning and based on the outcome will make a decision about closure.

Kent Local Authority’s definition of ‘Essential travel’ includes staff and pupils going to school.

How will you be informed?


    1.   We will text you using our normal system so please make sure the details held

                in the school office are up to date.

 2.     We will post a message on the home page of the school website and KLZ.

 3.  We will register any closures on the county website:

 4.  Radio stations (BBC Radio Kent, Heart FM and KMFM) will pick up school

               closures from the Kent website above and broadcast them.


Your decision

If you live some distance away you must make your own decision about road conditions and let the school know if your child will not be attending.

If you live within walking distance your child is expected to attend if the school is open.
