Unexpected School Closures

Register for notification of 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.
