Adverse Weather Protocol

Please note: in the event of a severe weather warning that may affect the school’s normal opening hours, the following procedures will be put in place:

  • As soon as we are alerted to severe weather, an email will be sent to parents with regular updates (if you know of a parent that would not receive an email, we would ask that you would help them by notifying them there may be a closure)

  • Any decision to close the school will be made by 7:30am. Information will be emailed to parents and posted on the front page of the website

  • will be updated on a regular basis – you will need to refresh your browser, if you stay logged on to the website

  • Wherever possible, we will have the school phone manned for telephone queries.

  • There will be a skeleton staff manning the telephones and to be on hand should a student not get the message and arrive at school.  

  • We will update the main Hampshire website regarding our status and any changes 

What happens if the weather deteriorates during the school day?

  • The school will only close in the event of severe weather or on advice from the Local Authority.  The decision will be made by the Headteacher.

  • The decision will be posted on the website, sent by email and students will be permitted to text a dictated message to parents.

  • All parents will be contacted and all children will need collecting. No children will walk home alone.

  • School will be kept opened and appropriately staffed until the last child has left the building.
