Severe Snow/Ice Plan for Parents and Families

How will you let me know if the school is closed?

If we do experience severe snow/ice resulting in hazardous conditions, the Head Teacher may have to take the decision to close the school. Once this decision has been made we will notify parents via the Kent Closures website ( . You can easily register on the Kent Closures website (search for the school in the search box) to receive notification, by e-mail or SMS text, of when Sandwich Juniors (or any other school) is closed for any reason other than normal Staff Development Days i.e. severe weather.

We will continue to put the message out for when the school is closed on our own school website and Twitter (@SandwichJunior) as well as the Kent Closures website; if you register on this site you are informed automatically by either e-mail or SMS text.

Parents can also listen to KMFM, BBC Radio Kent or Heart FM to hear if a school has closed.


What can I do to help?

• Please visit for more information about gritting routes and travel issues around Kent so you can plan your journey.

• Please can you provide a packed lunch from home in case school meals cannot be provided.

• Don’t forget suitable warm clothing – gloves, hats, scarves, wellies etc. or even a change of clothing.

• If you are a working parent or feel you may have a problem with a sudden earlier pick up, please could you put a back‐up plan in place with another family member or parent and inform the school. This will allow staff to leave earlier for their safety if weather dictates.


Many thanks for your support in helping Sandwich Junior School remain open during periods of severe snow/ice.


Keep your children safe!
