Procedure for Severe Weather or Emergency School Closures

Our Procedure Explained

In the event of an emergency school closure the decision on whether the school stays open will be taken by the Headteacher after carrying out a risk assessment.

In the event of severe weather, the school will remain open whenever  possible.

Information about any closure will be available

on the school's website:

by phone: 

020 8509 9446 

or via a text message  

We aim to send text messages to parents and carers, although there are sometimes delays in getting these messages through promptly, so please check the school’s website for up to date information.  Please ensure that the School Office has on record up to date addresses and  telephone numbers including a mobile number and the person to contact in the case of a student emergency. 

It is essential that the school has at least one land line and a mobile number for all students.
