Emergency Closure Information
Emergency Closure Policy
We aim to inform staff and parents immediately if we are unable to open due to an emergency. Staff and parents will be informed by email or text except in extreme bad weather conditions where parents can consult the school Web site wwwstjohnstiverton.co.uk or the schools Facebook page.
We will implement the emergency closure in the follow events:-
- Extreme bad weather
- No heating and hot water
- Fire damage
- Incident on school premises
- High levels of sickness among staff and children
- Notifiable diseases
If there is an outbreak of sickness we will contact appropriate agencies. If there is an outbreak of any of the listed notifiable diseases we will inform Ofsted and act on advice from the Health Protection Agency.
The administration team will inform parents when the building is reopened, except when this is for bad weather then this will be on the web site or the schools Facebook page.
