School Closures

In the event of an emergency school closure, information can be accessed in the following ways:


  • An e-mail will be sent via Parentmail to all parents and carers who have informed us of their e-mail address. This will be the fastest and easiest way of receiving news of a closure so please ensure that we have your most up to date details on our records. 
  • The school website will be updated with relevant news - closures will be displayed on the scrolling banner on the main home page.
  • The Essex County Council website will be updated with news of all school closures . Follow the link Schools and Learning > Schools > Emergency School Closures > Check school closures or click here


Local radio stations do not make announcements regarding school closures —the above methods of communication will be the only ways to access the information.
