Bad Weather Protocol

In the event of bad weather and a potential school closure, parents should check the school website and listen to BBC Radio Essex for updated information.

Staff will always attempt to open the school but parents should be aware that some members of our staff live a significant distance away from the village, so the weather conditions for their commute may prevent them reaching the school.

Mr Rance will attempt to ensure parents are informed as soon as possible regarding a closure, although this can take time if he is trying to get to school and is delayed by conditions. We would aim to circulate information by 8:00 am and will also use relevant social media outlets where possible.
