Adverse Weather Plan

Noak Bridge Primary School Adverse Weather Plan


In the event of disruption caused by adverse weather the prime concern of the school must always be the safety of our pupils and staff. We will always do our upmost to open the school in the event of bad weather as long as it is safe for us to do so. Staff will always endeavour to make every reasonable effort to undertake their normal journey to school. However, due to the distance that many of our staff have to travel, we cannot guarantee that they will all be able to arrive at their normal time or at all.


Essex County Council procedures for informing parents about school arrangements in the event of severe weather, any site issues or exceptional circumstances have been changed. The key change is that closures will no longer be announced on the local radio stations. From now on we will inform you in the following ways:


  • Via the Essex County Council Emergency School Closure Website.



  • We will send an email to all parents and carers.


  • We will also send a text to all parents and carers through our Primary Site ‘Text Communication System’.


We understand that your journeys may also be disrupted, so we can be flexible with the registers and arrival times and of course the decision as to whether or not to send your children to school is at your discretion taking into account factors such as local road conditions and your own welfare and safety.
