Welcome back

Adverse Weather Arrangements

This is our yearly notification about our arrangements for when it is necessary to close the school, or open late, during adverse weather conditions.

Hopefully, we will not need to close the school at any point this Winter, so this notice is for information only. Any such action is not only for the safety of the students when travelling to and from school, but also for the safety of the staff; many of whom have lengthy journeys into school and home again, sometimes in more extreme conditions than are experienced on the coast. This can cause acute staff shortages in school.

Should we need to close the school at any point due to adverse weather conditions, we will do so by the following means:

  • Via the Essex County Council website where parents / carers can see the full list of school closures.
  • A text message sent through our communication system.

In order  for our communication system to be an effective tool, it is imperative that we have your up-to-date contact details. If you have changed your mobile number, and have yet to inform us, can we please ask you to provide your correct details via email to

We need the name of your child / children, their class, your name(s) and your mobile telephone number(s).

Thank you.
