School Closure Procedures


Schools occasionally have to close for a variety of reasons such as lack of heating, water, electricity or due to severe weather conditions. Closing the school is always the last resort which is based on the health and safety of children and staff. We always do our best to inform parents/carers as soon as possible and there is a variety of ways we do this. Here is a reminder of our school closure procedures.

PLEASE ASSUME SCHOOL IS OPEN – we will notify you via the media below if we are closed.


Also, please avoid ringing the school so that the phone lines are available for emergency calls.

  2. Parent Mail – Please check your emails regularly


  3. School Website: Please check the ‘scrolling banner’ at the top for updates.


4. Listen to local Radio Stations (Heart Essex, BBC Essex) for updates.
