Coronavirus (COVID-19): Closure of educational settings: information for parents and carers - GOV.UK
Information for parents and carers about the closure of schools and other educational settings following the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
As part of the school’s planning for emergencies, parents are reminded that incidents that necessitate school closure include such things as extreme weather and loss of essential electrical, water or heating services. Details of school closures will be texted to parents via Teachers2Parents.
They will also be displayed on the front page of the school website. On days when the weather conditions are poor but the school is open, parents are advised to walk to school.
We hope you appreciate that the decision to close is never made lightly, as the safety and welfare of our children, school staff and parents/carers is of paramount importance, and no one would like to see this compromised.
In the event of closure due to snow, messages will also be on the local radio stations.
Hertfordshire County Council has a notification system for the school and parents to use called the ‘Everbridge’ system. Parents will need to sign up using the following link:
