Emergency closures

In the event of bad weather overnight, or other emergency situation, the Head of School will decide whether it is possible to open the school as normal: considerations include police advice on travelling (including the safety of walking/cycling to school), the ability of the school buses to pick up students safely, the availability of staff who often 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/carers. This includes texting parents, updating the website www.bayceschool.org and the Isle of Wight Council website https://www.iow.gov.uk/. Isle of Wight Council will also contact local radio stations advising them of the closure. 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.

On the first day of any closure you are advised to listen to the local radio stations or check the website first. If the school is closed you do not need to report your child as absent.
