Useful Information

Bad weather emergency procedures.
In the event of snow or extremely bad weather, we will text out to all parents any closure news.  It will also be posted on our website and announced on Radio Cornwall/Pirate FM.  You DO NOT need to contact us before collecting your child as this would only overload the telephone lines. 
Please rest assured we will NOT close the school until all children have been collected.

Emergency Action Plan

In accordance with Government guidelines, we regularly review our emergency action procedures. Set out below is a brief overview of our procedures to ensure that all pupils and staff remain safe at all times.

In the event of a disaster such as fire, gas leak, bomb threat or any other incident where the building cannot be occupied:

When students are on site, the fire bells will ring to instigate a whole school evacuation to the designated safe areas.

The Senior Leadership team will decide, in liaison with the emergency services, on the next action. If we are instructed to evacuate, we will walk all students to Bethel Chapel. As part of this procedure:

  • A text will be sent to all parents / carers informing them of the action being taken

  • Students will remain at Bethel Chapel until collected by one of their named contacts

Thank you for your support with this. I really do hope that this never happens, but if it does, we can work together and keep our children safe.
