Adverse Weather Procedures
The following arrangements will take effect in the event of extreme bad weather:
Unexpected Heavy Snowfall
If we have adverse weather, we will make every effort to keep the school open, including gritting the paths on the school site. However, the safety of children and staff while at school and while travelling to and from school is of paramount importance.
If we decide to close the school, a message will be displayed prominently on the school website. Notices will also be displayed at both entrances to the school. We will send a text message to all parents who are registered with Parentmail PMX® and who have provided us with up to date mobile phone numbers.
We will contact BBC Wiltshire (103.5 FM 104.3 FM and DAB) who will include details of closures on its website www.bbc.co.uk/wiltshire.
The school telephone will be manned or an answer phone message will be placed on it.
School will be open if enough teachers and staff arrive to look after each class and if the essential infrastructure of the school (heating/lighting) is working. If it is impossible to supervise a class because not enough staff are present, the children in that class will have to be sent home.
In such an emergency situation we ask that no child be sent to school until it is certain that the class will be open. Please check!
