SCHOOL PROCEDURE IN THE EVENT OF SEVERE WEATHER (SNOW)
a) PROCEDURES FOR THE START OF THE SCHOOL DAY
Every attempt will be made to open the school as normal during adverse weather conditions, but as a number of staff have substantial distances to travel to school this may not always be feasible. Where it is impossible to ensure the health and safety of the children the Headteacher will make the decision along with the Leadership Team to either close or delay the start of the school day. Wherever possible any such decision will be made by 7.30am and an announcement to that effect will be on the scrolling bar of our school website www.cspacademy.org.uk Class Coordinators will be contacted by the school via email and asked to post notifications on their ClassList page www.classlist.com
Announcements will also be made on the following:
· Bucks School closures website https://closures.buckscc.gov.uk/
· Mix 96 radio station
· Facebook www.facebook.com/CSPAHead
· Twitter www.twitter.com/CSPA_Head
b) PROCEDURES FOR DETERIORATING WEATHER THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL DAY
Should the weather deteriorate as the day progresses and parents are concerned about the health & safety of their children, they should use their discretion and if appropriate, collect them from school.
If the school is concerned about deteriorating weather, we will email you to ask you to collect as soon as possible and update the scrolling bar on the school website and our school media platforms to this effect. Because of this, parents are asked to ensure their mobile phones are switched on during periods of severe and inclement weather and that you check emails and the school online platforms regularly. We ask that parents do not telephone school to check this as the telephone lines may be needed in
Should you need further clarification of any aspect of the above, please do not hesitate to speak to the School Office.
