As we enter the period where the likelihood of extremely adverse weather increases, there is always the possibility that the school may need to close due to severe weather (eg snow ) or premises problems (eg loss of heating, loss of power).
It is therefore important that I remind you of the procedure for closing the school. I am not expecting this to happen and very much hope that we do not need to do so.
In the unlikely event of storm damage or bad weather (snow) forcing the school to close, the following procedure will be taken:
1. Closure before school begins (ie overnight or before 8 am): Information will be broadcast on Radio Cornwall, Pirate FM, and Heart FM. Our website will be updated as soon as possible. A text and Class Dojo message will also be sent out to all parents. In the case that pupils arrive at school, parents/carers will be informed as soon as possible and the pupil looked after until they are safely collected.
2. Closure during the school day: Messages will go out on local radio and on the school website. A text and Class Dojo, or closed group Facebook message will also be sent out to all parents. Parents will then be asked to collect their children as soon as possible. All pupils will be safely cared for until the parent/carer can collect them.
Thank you for your support with this.
The safety and well-being of our students will be the first priority in all decisions on school closure.
