Hindhayes Infant School


Adverse Weather Procedures

The decision to close school will only be made if it is absolutely necessary to do so.  Such a situation could arise, for example, as a result of insufficient numbers of staff being able to make their way to school thus making childrens' presence in school unsafe.

The decision to close the school would be taken by Mrs Nester, Headteacher, in the morning, after careful consideration and discussion with the Local Authority.  If we were to close the school we would contact parents in the following ways:

1.     A message would appear on the school's website by or shortly after 7.45am each day                and we would update the website with information, as far as possible, during the day.

2.     A text message would be sent to all those who receive this service by or shortly after            7.45am.

3.     Broadcasts by the following Radio Stations:

        Radio Bristol               99.5FM and 1548MW                                                                      

        Somerset Sound        1566MHz

        Heart FM                      102.6FM

If we were forced to close during the day, we would inform parents by text message or, for those who do not receive this service, by telephone.  Everything reasonably possible would be done to ensure childrens' safety and well-being.

If you do not receive information to the contrary, please assume the school will be open as usual.
