Severe Weather

There are a few times in the year when bad weather and the condition of the roads have an obvious effect on our transport arrangements.   During these times common sense must prevail, and always err on the side of safety if you are unsure.  When there is heavy snowfall during the school day, transport will be asked to collect the children early and every attempt will be made to contact parents.

In the event of severe weather conditions, a decision to close the school will be taken between 06:00 and 07:00 and communicated to the Local Authority who will, in turn, transmit the information to the local radio stations as follows:

  • Heart FM on 97.1 or 96.4 FM
  • Radio Suffolk – at 10 minutes and 20 minutes to each hour on 95.5, 95.9, 103.9 or 104.6 FM
  • Q103 on 103 and 97.4 FM in the Newmarket area.
