PROCEDURE FOR SCHOOL CLOSURE IN THE EVENT OF SNOW

Should we take the decision to close the school for health and safety reasons in the event of heavy snow or dangerous icy conditions, the decision will be announced immediately in the following ways: 

• The Ivanhoe College website – there will be a message on the front page. Please remember to refresh your web page at regular intervals. 
• We will also send a text message to all parents whose mobile phone numbers are on our system 
• We will aim to contact Radio Leicester who will include the school name in their news bulletins and on their website, http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/leicester/hi/ 

Any decision to close will not be taken lightly. We will always do our best to remain open. In taking the decision the following guidance from Leicestershire County Council will be followed: 
• Health and Safety - will remaining open constitute a significant risk to pupils and/or staff? 
• Availability of staff - has the severe weather meant that a significant number of staff have been unable to attend making it impossible to open? 


Thank you to all parents/carers for your continued support.
