Extreme Weather Closure Procedure

Our aim is to keep the School open during extreme weather if at all possible. If having carried out a risk-assessment the Headmaster decides to close, we will place a notice on to the homepage of our website www.kes.net, a tweet will be sent via Twitter (@KES_Stratford) and an email will sent via Schoolcomms by 7.15am. If no communication is posted by this time the School will be open.          

Please note that whilst the School may consider the site safe to open, it is up to parents to consider local circumstances and decide whether their son/daughter’s journey to and from School is too hazardous.  In these circumstances absence would be considered authorised once we have been informed in writing by the parents.  Absence will also be considered authorised if students are unable to attend School due to buses not operating.

If we need to close the School owing to bad weather during the School day, we will also contact you by these means. Students who have mobiles will be allowed to call their parents.  Those students who do not will go to the School Office where staff will assist in contacting parents.


King Edward VI School is committed to safeguarding, equality of opportunit
y, and promoting the welfare of young people, and expects all in our community to share this commitment.
