Procedures for parents in case of severe weather conditions/sudden school closure


In the event of sudden closure of the school due to bad weather, power/heating failure, the following procedures for parents will apply:


  • Sign up for the Schools Closure Notification System - Everbridge (see link below)
  • Check for school communication from Arbor
  • Check the school website for any messages
  • Listen to Three Counties Radio

To sign up, please go to the following link –

This link will direct you to the “Sign Up” page where you should click on the “sign up” button located at the top right hand side of the page on the grey strip and from there follow the instructions. It should take no more than 5 minutes to register and you can edit your information at any time you change your mobile number or email address.

Each contact within the system can have 2 devices added for each communication type if you wish to – this means that in addition to adding your own mobile number and email address, you could include the mobile number and email address of a partner or a grandparent in the registration process. They too would then receive any messages in relation to the school’s closure. Alternatively, interested parties could register themselves separately.

If you have children at more than one school you can register for those schools too in a single registration process by selecting all relevant schools.


Healthy School

We are proud of our 'Healthy School' award and follow guidance given to us from the Department for Education in relation to all aspects of your child's health and well-being. Herts Catering Ltd (HCL) follow this too but should you wish to bring a home packed lunch in for your child rather than have one supplied by HCL please ensure you do NOT include the following:

  • Nuts of any type (including peanut butter and chocolate spread)
  • Sweets or chocolate bars
  • Fizzy drinks (a carton of juice is acceptable with lunch)

We also request that your child has a name water bottle with them for use during the day - please note the water bottle should only contain water and not squash or juice.
