Emergency Procedures for Adverse Weather 2015

With the weather set to get colder over the coming weeks, we feel it is important to remind everyone of the procedure should we be unable to open due to adverse weather such as heavy snow. 


If you feel the weather conditions are unsuitable to travel in and are unsure as to whether school is open, please note the following steps will be taken as soon as possible:

A message will be placed on the front page of our school web site if school is closed –

www.southview-jun.hants.sch.uk  and Hantsweb.


· A text message will be sent to the mobile phone number you provided   via the SchoolComms text message service.

· A post will be made on our school Facebook page

· A message will be tweeted via our school Twitter account @SouthViewJr

· Local radio stations will be notified of our closure and issue bulletins.


We will endeavour to clear the school site in both icy and snowy conditions, however please appreciate that some gates and pathways will not be opened until they have been gritted and made

 as safe as possible.  The main gate will be the priority entrance to be cleared and gritted.
