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 
 

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? 

Please note also that our school contract buses are all joint contracts with Ashby School and therefore decisions about these services will mostly be taken jointly with the Headteacher of Ashby School. 


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