Severe Weather Guidelines

Severe Weather Guidelines

Just in case we have a repeat of the last few years’ snowy weather, here’s a reminder of what happens when it snows.

  •  Always assume school will be open. Enough staff live close enough to school to open up.
  • Check the school website from 8.00 for updates. If kitchen staff are unable to get in you may be asked to send in a packed lunch for your child.
  • Check: http://www.kent.gov.uk/winter This is a new service from KCC. Instead of trying to listen out for closures on the radio you can visit this site, click on ‘check school closures’, search for St James’ CE Aided Infant School and you will be told if we are closed.
  • On this page you can register for text alerts from KCC to warn you of closures.
  • BBC Radio Kent, HeartFM and KMFM will use this information for their broadcasts.
  • Send some spare socks and warm clothes as we always love to get outside!
