School Closure

 INFORMATION NOTICE FOR PARENTS

 

In the event of bad weather and the possibility of school closure the following systems are in place to ensure parents/carers have the most up to date information as possible:

 

·         A text message via the school’s text messaging service Teachers2Parents.

 

·         A message will be given out via KMFM, Radio Kent or Heart FM.

 

·         Online at www.kent.gov.uk/winter

 

·         Parents will also have the opportunity to sign up to text message alerts on www.kentclosures.co.uk (There is a charge for this particular service of 20p plus your standard network charge).

 

We will also use the same systems to notify parents of continuing closure and of the date of re-opening.  Should the school have to close during a school day due to worsening weather conditions the Teachers2Parents text messaging service will be used to inform parents.  Please can you ensure that the office staff are informed if your contact details change.

 

If it is necessary for the school to close parents may like to visit the BBC or direct.gov.uk websites for home learning resources to support learning while the school is closed.
