Phone Lines

We are having issues with our phone lines again this morning.  These have been reported and the engineers are working to resolve this as soon as possible.

Please accept our apologies.

 

Adverse Weather Arrangements

The school will only close if it is absolutely necessary to do so. Such a situation could arise, for example:

If insufficient numbers of staff being able to make their way to school, making it difficult for us to provide adequate supervision.

If the forecast indicates a serious deterioration in weather conditions during the day. If the transport companies make the decision not to operate their coaches.

If conditions on the school site are too hazardous for staff and students.

The decision to close the school would be taken by the Headteacher or one of her senior colleagues.

If we were to close the school we would contact parents in the following ways:

1. A message would appear on the school’s website by or shortly after 7.30am each day and we would update the website with information, as far as possible, during the day.

2. A text message and/or email would be sent to all those who receive this service by or shortly after 7.30am.

3. Broadcasts by the following Radio Stations:

BBC Somerset - 95.5FM and 1566MHz  
Heart FM - 102.6FM, 97.1 FM (Yeovil area), 96.5 (Taunton area)
Breeze FM - 100.8FM, 102.4FM or 101.4FM

If a change in the weather requires the school to close after the start of the school day we would contact parents by text and/or email and a message would appear on the school website home page.

Students who use County Transport - as soon as we have notification from County Transport we will let parents know of the arrangements. Normally the buses arrive early to allow sufficient time for any travel delays.

Students who walk to school - usually they will be allowed to leave the site to make their way home, unless we receive notification from parents that their child should remain in school until they are collected.

Students who get a lift home - the school will stay open for as long as possible and continue to supervise your child until parents arrive. When a child is collected, it is important that Reception are informed so that your child can be formally signed out.

Further school closure details and school transport cancellations can be found on the Somerset County’s website. www.somerset.gov.uk/badweathertransport.
