In cases of adverse weather conditions or other situations that result in the school being closed at short notice, parents will be notified by:-
Announcements made on BBC Radio Wiltshire & Heart FM, who will regularly update listeners of any schools that are closed. If you do not hear our school mentioned, then it must be assumed that it is open as usual. Information is also available on the BBC radio Wiltshire website.
Adverse weather impacts on health and safety, and local decisions are based on local conditions. Whilst we do our very best to keep our school open, we see the health & safety of our pupils and staff as our first priority.
Heart Radio (97.2 FM and 102.2 FM)
BBC Wiltshire Radio (103.6 FM and 104.3 FM)
We will also post information on Parent Mail, our social media channels – The Friends of St Katharine’s Facebook Group – or our Twitter account @St_Katharines
Where possible (internet availability) a message will be posted here if a decision has been made to close the school.
Until government advice changes we will endeavour to keep the school operational. We will make decisions based on the health and safety of both children and staff.
If there is any information relating to school closure or partial closure it will be posted here:
