If the school needs to close for any reason we will make every effort to ensure that all parents, children and visitors are made aware of the situation as soon as possible - usually via facebook, texts, email and as' latest news' on the website.
Extreme Weather Arrangements - All the ways you can find out
1. School Website - There will be an announcement posted on the home page as soon as possible after the decision to close the school has been made. However, if the bad weather is widespread, the website may be difficult to access (due to the heavy demand at the server) both for us to update and for you to read, but we will do our best. Please make sure that we have your current mobile number at all times, our first point of contact is via text message.
2. A list of school closures will be posted on the Kent County Council website at http://www.kentclosures.co.uk
3. Local Radio – Listen to Radio Kent in the morning, where regular announcements are made regarding school closures. However, if the bad weather is widespread, it can take some time before our school is added to their list. The list of school closures is also displayed on www.bbc.co.uk/radiokent. Follow the links for school closures. Again, if the weather is widespread, it may take a short while before our school is added to the list. www.kmfm.co.uk is also a reliable local radio link to access local schools closure information.
Emergency Closure during the day
If we have to close in the middle of the day, for reasons such as a heating failure we will use our home text service, facebook group.
