In the event of bad weather the Head teachers of both the Infant and Junior Schools will consult on the best course of action for BOTH schools. As we serve the same catchment area and the same families, we will adopt a similar course of action if the weather affects the area. Many of our teachers and support staff travel considerable distance into North Baddesley - it is important that we consider the safety of the whole school community. We also want to ensure we give you maximum notice - having to make a decision to close the school(s) mid-way through a school day is far from ideal for everyone. If the problem is due to a supply failure (e.g. heating or water) then only the school with the problem may have to close.
NBJS will attempt to notify you in three ways:
1/ The official HCC School Closure page:
https://www.hants.gov.uk/education/schoolclosures/ this links with alerts to local radio stations
2/ See the scrolling banner on the school website home page
3/ Receive a text message from school
Please always make these your first choice rather than ringing school. If none of these show closure information, assume school is open as usual. The information can be entered remotely so a decision can be made at the earliest opportunity.
