St John's CE First School

Adverse Weather

A reminder that, on rare occasions, there may be a necessity to close the school. We will endeavour to advise parents via the texting service and on the school website. However, information on school closures is also available via the following sources:

Local radio stations broadcast emergency information regarding school closures. These include BBC Radio Solent (FM 96.1 or MW 999) and Heart 102.3 FM. The radio stations have asked schools to remind parents not to phone them directly, but to listen for announcements which will be broadcast at regular intervals.

School closure information can be accessed via the Dorsetforyou website by clicking here. If school is open, please make every effort to bring your child, especially if you are within walking distance, as it is very important to your child’s education.
