BAD WEATHER POLICY

Guidance for Parents / Carers in the Case of Bad Weather

It is our policy to keep the school open wherever possible. Please assume the school is open unless you hear otherwise. The Department for Education recognises the delivery of education to pupils as an essential service, as do we.

If we do have to close, parents/carers will be informed in the following ways:

The school website www.teignacademy.co.uk

By text message (for those who have signed up to receive texts from school)

Via Facebook: Teign School

Via Twitter: follow us @Teign

The information will be published on the Kingsteignton Council website

There may also be an announcement on local radio stations including BBC Radio Devon bbc.co.uk/radiodevon , Heart Radio www.heart.co.uk , Devon Air www.devonairfm.com and Palm Radio www.palm.fm

This situation is highly unlikely and will be avoided wherever possible. There is no need to contact the school to check whether or not the school is open. Unless announced as above, we are open.
