In severe weather it may be necessary to close the school. At such times, Radio Kent and Heart Radio are used to give parents necessary information. We stress that no children are ever sent home from school without proper arrangements being made first with their parents or alternative contacts.
Radio Kent : 96.7 FM Heart Radio : 103.1 FM
Information will also be sent electronically to you by text message. Please advise the office if you change your mobile telephone number or indeed any other contact details.
If the school is closed for a number of days, the staff will set work for your pupils via the learning platform.
In the unlikely event of any emergency please listen to the radio as calling the school could block telephone lines needed for the emergency services.
Please do not come to the school. Your children will be safe. You may cause complications if we are evacuating the site. An emergency evacuation may mean that we go to The Hundred of Hoo site, the local church or the Community Centre/Park for example. The school has emergency procedures in place.
In the event of an emergency – information will be posted on the school’s learning platform, on the radio websites and, if possible, you will be notified by text message.
