If we do experience severe weather resulting in hazardous conditions, we may be forced to close the School. The normal expectation should be that the School is open. Once a decision is made to close, we will:
- Post a message on the School website by 6.30am or asap;
- We will update the website regularly to keep parents, staff and students informed about arrangements for the following day;
- We will inform the local radio stations for their school closure arrangements and Kent Closures website will be notified.
If the School is forced to close during the day, we will immediately post a message on the website and send a message to parents via text/e mail. Local radio stations will be contacted to make announcements.
If the School is open, but that you feel the journey is not safe for your son/daughter, please contact the School to report the absence in the usual manner. During any cold weather please ensure that students come appropriately attired with coats, hats and gloves. If it is too cold/icy outside we will direct students to inside venues on arrival.
Our Virtual Learning platform, Frog, will have work assigned by the teachers in order to enable students to continue working from home if the School is closed. All teachers are instructed to set work for students in this way in the event of a school closure.
