Emergency Closure Procedure

Our procedure in the event of a decision being made to close the school, for example due to snow,

Severe Weather Arrangements

In case of severe weather, we will keep you informed of what is happening by text messages as early as possible first thing in the morning. We are obliged to make a decision by 7 am in order to inform the Local Authority.

Please make sure that Mrs Cracknell has your main mobile phone number on her system and that you inform her of any changes immediately, otherwise you will not get the messages.

Alternatively, you can look on the Local Authority website but please remember that there will be a delay between us informing the Emergency Officer that we are closed, and it being reflected on the website. Radio Suffolk also announces school closures but, again, texts direct to you are much quicker.

If at all possible, the school will always try to remain open, but we have to be sure that there will be enough staff present to meet the legal requirements for looking after the number of children.
