Emergency School Closure
A system for arranging a broadcast of emergency school closure announcements in bad weather has been arranged. Broadcasts will begin as early as possible and continue until 9.00am. Code words and telephone numbers are confidential and therefore any severe weather warnings would be real. The announcements are made on the following radio stations:
RADIO MIX96 96.2FM
CHILTERN RADIO 97.6FM
We post information on our school website and send text messages and e-mails to all parents. We also use our Twitter account (@AstonClintonSch). In addition there will be information on the Buckinghamshire County Council website www.buckscc.gov.uk .
In some exceptional circumstances it may be necessary to close the school during the day. In these cases the school will send out text and e-mail messages asking parents to arrange for their children to be collected. In a situation where parents cannot be contacted, members of staff will supervise the children until alternative arrangements can be made.
