Very occasionally, it is necessary to close the school because of inclement weather, particularly excessive snow or loss of utilities e.g. water, electricity. The responsibility for the closure of the school rests with the Headteacher and notice of such closure would be broadcast in the following ways:
- Parents/carers will receive a text message alert to advise them of the school closure.
- A message will be posted on the home page of this website.
- Suffolk County Council has a website with details of school closures: http://schoolclosures.suffolk.gov.uk/
Staff and parents are advised to listen to local radio stations, who run regular updates.
The headteacher will make decisions as early as practicable, usually around 7am.
Please note, we work closely with our primary partners, Abbots Hall, Bosmere Community, Chilton Primary, Combs Ford, Trinity CEVA, Ringshall and Wood Ley to try to make collective decisions in order to help families who may have children at different schools.
