Adverse Weather Closure

Emergency Closure Plan 2016-17 

The decision to shut the school is a serious one and the need is usually related to poor weather conditions.  In such a situation the decision is based upon answers to the following questions:

  • Is the school site safe for:
    • Motor vehicles
    • Pedestrians
  • Will the buses be able to run through the villages?
  • Can sufficient staff safely get to school for the school to be able to open?
  • What advice have we been given by:
    • OCC
    • National weather organisations

 

When the Headteacher makes the decision to close the school the information is placed on the school website.  It is also:

  • posted on the school’s social media sites – facebook and twitter
  • sent out via Parentmail
  • sent to OCC – who will put the information on their website
  • sent to Jack FM, Heart FM, Radio Oxford – who will broadcast the closure at regular intervals

 

The school reception may not be manned under these circumstances.
