Inclement Weather

Pre-Planning

  • Severe weather warnings may initiate decisions

  • Letters home to parents stating precautions and intentions

  • Inclement Weather Strategy and procedures discussed with all staff

 

Site Assessment

  • Site Assessment carried out by Headteacher and Caretaker

  • This may require a phone call decision if any Site Assessor is unable to attend school.

  • Decision to close is based on the health/safety of all pupils and staff

 

Closing the school while all staff and pupils already on site:

  • School office and class teachers work closely to ensure that all parents are contacted as soon as possible to inform about school closure

  • Parent Push Notification platform, school website and Parent Email used to inform and update all parents.

  • Staff travelling situations need consideration

    • Distance, Walking, Vehicle, Health, etc.

  • Lee Burnell to contact (Using the Password)

 

Closing the school before the school day starts

  • Site Assessor contacts Headteacher (If cannot attend)

  • Headteacher contacts the Admin Team

  • Admin Team uses Parent Push Notification platform to inform all parents about the decision.

  • The school has set up a staffing group using social media software to ensure all staff can be contacted and updated in realtime.

  • Headteacher informs the Local Authority and The Wave using the security password.

 

School stays open, however some staff cannot attend due to localised problems

  • This information should come back to the Headteacher or SLT staff.

  • This prevents bottlenecking of phone calls and texting.

  • If staff do attend school the health and safety of all pupils and staff is paramount - Therefore the following factors must be considered:

    • Is the site safe to enter?

    • Is the heating working?

    • Have cleaners been able to attend?

    • Can lunch be provided?

    • Is there running water at all stations?

    • Do we have adequate pupil to staff ratio?

      • 1 Adult:30 Pupils (Class Based)

      • This may require reorganisation of classes if necessary

    • Crucial! – What is the current forecast!

This policy will be reviewed when necessary.
