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.
