Arrangements in case of severe weather
How will we let you know if the school is closed?
If we do experience severe snow/ice resulting in hazardous conditions, we may have to take the decision to close the school.
You can find the information you need from the following sources:
- Text received from the school office
- Kent Closure website – www.kentclosures.co.uk
- School website – cgps.kent.sch.uk/school-news
- Kent radio
Please do not telephone the school as the phone lines may be needed.
Even if the school is open, you may decide at the start of the day that the journey into school is not safe for your daughter/son. Please can you then text the school to report the absence in the usual way.
The school will always remain open whenever possible. We will only close on health and safety grounds, e.g. no heating, no running water, insufficient staff to supervise the students or if the site is not safe.
