School Closure

In the event of school closure due to bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances we will do our best to notify parents and carers as soon as possible at the start of the day via ClassDojo. If you are not registered for ClassDojo please enquire at the school office.

School closures will also be updated on the Essex County Council website mentioned below.

Essex County Council Online Notification System

This allows parents to keep up-to-date about unplanned school closures (due to bad weather for example) faster and more effectively via the internet.

Notifications from schools are added to a live feed on the emergency school closures page on the council’s website. Please click on this link to go directly to the page:

This feed will continue to update as notifications of school closures are received. The page will refresh at 6pm each evening and closure lists for the next day will then go live.

Local radio stations will continue to support local schools in getting vital school closure messages out in as many ways as possible, including signposting listeners to the school closures page on the council’s website.
