EMERGENCY SNOW CLOSURE – PROCEDURE
We try our hardest to keep the school open in the event of snow. However, there are occasions when we have to close (access is dangerous or not enough staff are able to reach the school). On these occasions, the following steps are taken to notify parents of the school closure:
A message will appear on the school website (www.queen-eleanors.surrey.sch.uk)
- Eagle Radio will make announcements about school closures on a regular basis throughout the day and usually put closures on their website (www.964eagle.co.uk)
- A ParentPay email message will be sent out to all parents registered
- All school closures are listed on the Surrey County Council website (www.surreycc.gov.uk)
- We will also endeavour to put a message on the school answerphone.
If you do not have access to a computer or to ParentPay, we ask that you speak to other parents at the school who will be able to advise you of the latest situation. Any decision to close the school will be made, if possible, by 8am. However, please continue to check the website as weather conditions can deteriorate very quickly and could force us to close the school later than this time.
If we need to close the school once the school day has begun, the same procedures above will apply, but we would please request that you telephone the school to confirm pick up arrangements for your child/ren.
