School Closure

EJS 2015 (55a)The school follows Wokingham Borough Council’s protocol for full, partial or early closure of schools – revised January 2010.

In the event of 50% or more of the teachers indicating their inability to arrive at school, then it will be impossible to ensure Health and Safety of the children and it will be necessary to close the school. This is a decision which will be made by the Head Teacher in consultation with the Chair of Governors. If the Head Teacher is unavailable, the decision will be made by the Deputy Head Teacher in consultation with the Chair of Governors.

Parents may also be advised that in the event of the weather turning worse during the school day, they will be able to come to school and collect their children early. In such circumstances, individual parents or emergency contacts may also be approached to collect children. All children must be signed out and collected from the reception area of the school.

Sufficient staff will remain in school until all children have been collected.

Communicating School Closure

Once a decision has been made to close the school, the Head teacher should inform the following radio stations at the earliest possible opportunity, using the prescribed code words. Parents have been advised to listen to these radio stations if they have any concerns over the possible closure of the school. A text message will also be sent by to parents, informing them of the closure and the Learning Platform will be updated.
