Extreme Weather Conditions

If at all possible we will try to keep the school open. We only close as a last resort. When taking such a decision due regard is given to health and safety, as well as the implications for parents who may have to arrange childcare.

Closures related to severe weather, site issues or exceptional circumstances will be reported on Essex County Council’s website.

Parents can also phone the Parent Hotline, 08447707576 School ID 48564, where a message will be left regarding the opening of the school as soon as it is possible.
