Snow closures and other EMERGENCY closures– GUIDELINES FOR PARENTS 2020-21

Should we be forced to close the school at short notice due to power cuts, bad weather, illness, heating failure, industrial action or any other major event we will:
• Broadcast the information on BBC Wiltshire Radio (103.5, 103.6, 104.3 & 104.9 FM) and Heart Wiltshire FM (97.2 & 102.2) and keep them informed of the situation throughout the day

• Contact parents via the school text/e-mail system (therefore it is essential that this information is always correct and up-to-date)

• Where possible we will put a message on our website

• Endeavour to keep the school office open, with a skeleton staff

• Endeavour to have staff at the school from 8.30am to 9.00am to update you on the situation

• In the event that we have to close the school during the school day parents will be notified via the school text/email system and arrangements will be made to accommodate children until they are collected

We would like you to:
• Ensure that if your child walks to school alone that you know the school is open, so check first!

• Listen to broadcasts on BBC Wiltshire Radio or Heart Wiltshire FM, check for texts and/or emails from school and consult the school website where possible

• Ensure that all your contact details in the school office are up-to-date

Thank you for your understanding and patience
