Emergency & Closure Procedure
It is occasionally necessary to close the school when weather conditions are extreme and our children’s safety is deemed at risk. This will only happen if travelling to and from school is dangerous for the children and their families or for staff who have a distance to travel.
Parents and carers will usually be notified via the school websites and social media pages, Heart FM radio bulletins at breakfast time and on the BCP website. We will send a text to all parents and carers to update them on the school’s position. If an urgent situation arises during the day, we will contact all parents and carers via text or phone call, if text is unavailable.
It is vital that the school is in possession of up-to-date telephone numbers so we can contact you if your child is ill. Additional emergency contact numbers enable us to make provision for your child if you are not available. Please tell us if any of your numbers change.
