Closing the school after overnight snow
In the event of bad weather overnight, the Headteacher will decide whether it is possible to open the school as normal: considerations include police advice on travelling, the availability of our staff (the majority of who live outside of Alresford) who have longer journeys to school, the safety of the site and the weather forecast.
If the school is closed we will make every effort to inform parents: texting parents and updating our website (www.sunhill-jun.hants.sch.uk) and Facebook. We will also log the closure on the Hampshire Education website (http://www.hants.gov.uk/schoolclosures) which will contain details of all local school closures. If the disruption is widespread, these services can suffer from technical problems due to heavy usage so please check that any information has been recently updated.
Closing the school early during the day
If the weather deteriorates during the day we may need to close early so that students and staff can get home safely. If this happens, we will use texts and email to alert parents and update our website. Can you therefore please ensure that the school office have your up-to-date mobile number and email address.
If the school is closed for more than one day
Class teachers will dojo and message parents school work and activities which should be completed at home by the students.
Please continue to look at the website for information about re-opening.
We may suspend normal school uniform arrangements so that students can dress appropriately for the weather. We will announce this clearly on the website and students are then expected to dress sensibly both for the weather and for a normal school day. Once the circumstances return to normal, students are expected to observe the normal school uniform rules again.
