Emergency Closure Procedure
Please note the following procedure will be used if it becomes necessary to close the school. This will happen if the roads are impassable or if the site is dangerous for students, staff and visitors.
Parents/Carers, Students and Staff will be informed via
• a notice on the home page of the school’s website (www.hedingham.essex.sch.uk ) and facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/hedinghamschool/)
• text message to parents and staff who have provided a mobile phone number
• a notice on Essex County Council’s School closure Page http://www.essex.gov.uk/Education-Schools/Schools/Dates/Pages/Emergency-School-Closures.aspx
• broadcasts on BBC Radio Essex (103.5 fm and 95.3 fm)
The buses will not run if the roads are dangerous. Students should come into school whenever there is no broadcast to tell them otherwise.
Staff should attempt to get into school, whenever possible unless informed of a closure.
