Should the school be closed suddenly in the event of an emergency or severe weather conditions, we will contact you by phone or by text message - so please ensure we always have your current mobile number.
If weather conditions indicate that by 3.15 pm children and staff may have difficulty getting home, every attempt will be made to contact you to ask you to either arrange to come and collect children from school or to contact their transport provider and arrange collection.
If you anticipate difficulties collecting your children later in the day due to weather conditions, please come early and collect children from school or telephone us to let us know what arrangement to make. The Headteacher and other authorised people will remain at school until all children have been safely collected by their parents.
If the decision is made not to open the school as a result of deteriorating conditions overnight, parents will be notified that the school is closed using the school texting service. We also ask you to tune into Radio Sussex and Heart FM who will be updating on school closures every 15mins on air.
