School Closure

Action In The Event Of School Closure:

  • The Head teacher will make the decision to close the school in consultation with other members of SLT and the Chair of Governors where possible.

  • The school closure will be published on the Buckinghamshire Council website (, this will also trigger announcements on local radio.

  • The information will be added to the school’s own website as soon as is reasonably possible.

  • Where the need for closure is at short notice in response to extreme weather conditions, all staff and parents will receive a text and the school website will be updated with details of the closure as soon as is reasonably possible.

If Severe Weather is forecast: Students should come to school with a suitable warm coat, and suitable water and slip proof footwear.  (They may bring a pair of wellington boots in a plastic bag to wear to and from school).  

If the closure occurs during the course of the day: you will be contacted by school to collect your child however obviously no child will be released until a responsible adult collects them. Please make every effort to collect them as quickly yet as safely as possible. Children who normally walk home will only be released once we have spoken to a parent/carer to authorise this.

In order that we are able to contact parents quickly and efficiently if the above should occur, please ensure we have your most up to date emergency contact numbers for two parents/carers who are likely to be collecting your child. If you have recently changed your number, please email with the email title ‘emergency contact update’.
