In the event of heavy snow

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are carefully monitoring the weather reports this week. Our aim is always to keep the school open whenever possible but the safety of pupils and staff is our priority.

If a decision is made that it is unsafe to open the school for any reason (e.g. snow, boiler breakdown etc.), we will endeavour to advise parents and carers by 7.15 am. Information will be communicated:

  1. By email/text on the Scopay communications tool.
  2. On the front page of the school website:
  3. On local Radio Stations (BBC Radio Solent and Wave 105 are the most reliable for this; other stations include Heart South Coast and The Breeze).
  4. On the Hampshire County Council Website: afternoon closures:

    If the situation arises that we have to close the school early in the day to ensure that children and staff can get home safely, we will let you know by email/text and also post it on the school website. If your work takes you far from home, please have a contingency plan for someone else to collect your child and advise the school of this arrangement should an early closure be needed.

    Mr R Cunningham
