We aim to keep you informed of all the events and activities going on in school.
We issue a newsletter every Friday to keep you informed of forthcoming events and points of concern or interest. Look out for this in your child’s bookbag. The newsletter is also published on the ‘Newsletters’ page of the website.
We also try to send home any other letters on Fridays if it is possible.
Copies of letters can be obtained from the class teacher or from the school office.
There are notice boards with school information on the edge of both upper and lower playgrounds.
A range of information leaflets and details of local family activities are displayed in the school reception.
Unexpected School Closures
It is getting colder – let’s hope the sun keeps shining!
In the event of severe weather, we will make the best decision possible based on current weather and the forecast as early as possible – usually in the morning. Information will then be sent to you in the following ways:
- A notification will be immediately sent to Hertfordshire. Announcements will also be made on Three Counties Radio (95.5FM), Heart FM (96.6), BOB FM (106.7,106.9).
- Notifications will be posted via the Everbridge system – see the sign up link above.
- We will text all parents with information stating whether we are open or closed (a good reason to make sure we have your up to date mobile number details).
- We will post on the school website.
We will always endeavour to keep the school open if at all possible, but will first need to take into account Health and Safety (particularly our ability to clear ice from the entrance to the school and in the playgrounds), road and footpath conditions and staffing numbers – ensuring that enough staff can make the journey in to school as many live at some distance from school.
