Lady Joanna Thornhill (Endowed) Primary School

Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand

Bad Weather Procedures



We will post our school closure on the home page of our website as soon as a decision has been made.  Should the decision to close the school be made, we will also send out a text and / or email to parents and carers.


We also advise parents/carers to register for alerts at  Kent School Closures,  and to listen to Heart FM (96.1) for updates.


  • If the weather deteriorates during school time, we will contact parents and advise them, where possible, to collect children.
  • No child will be sent home before the end of school without a parent's consent.
  • Parents and carers should contact the school for information, or to advise us if they are experiencing difficulty in collecting their children.
  • Please ensure that your emergency contact / childminder is aware of the school procedure and that you have made arrangements for children to stay with that person in the event of there being problems.
