At St John’s, we will always make every effort to keep our school open, but on occasion, if staff have been unable to get into school due to due to bad weather, we may have no option but to close. Parents will be notified as soon as possible via email. Please ensure your contact details are up to date.
In the event of a full or partial closure before the start of the school day, the child’s primary contact will receive notification via email.
The information will be put onto the school website, Kent County Council will be notified for their list of closed schools on their website and Radio Kent will announce the closure.
It is the parent/carer’s decision whether to attempt to get your child to school – if you consider it too dangerous to attempt the journey, keep them at home.
In the event of a full or partial closure during the school day, the child’s primary contact will receive an email with a time for collection and which entrance to use. Staff will hand children only to those known to be able to collect and for any child not collected, calls will be made to all contacts.
