Dear Parents/Carers,

BBC weather is indicating that over the coming weeks the weather could become increasingly wintry (see the BBC weather report below). In the event of the school having to close an announcement will be clearly posted on the home page of the website, on our Twitter and Facebook page and on local radio. Students will be able to access work via the Doddle homework app.

'There is a 70% probability of severe cold weather/icy conditions/heavy snow between 0900 on Monday 28 Jan and 0900 on Friday 01 Feb in South East England. This weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services.'

The Public Health Team are working with our communications team to ensure messages go out to families.

Please also refer to the PHE Winter Readiness Information:

“Severe cold weather can be dangerous, especially for the very young or very old or those with chronic disease. Advice on how to reduce the risk either for yourself or somebody you know can be obtained from the winter health pages at NHS Choices ( or from your local chemist. If you are worried about your health or that of somebody you know, ring NHS 111.”
