Procedures for Unexpected School Closure

Notification of a closure

If Walthamstow Hall ever has to close due to unforeseen events, such as extreme bad weather, the closure will be communicated via:

  • the school website home page
  • text and email messages sent via Parentmail 
  • the BBC Radio Kent website, www.bbc.co.uk/kent/local_radio
  • bulletins on BBC Radio Kent (96.7 FM, 104.2 FM, 774 AM, DAB and online).

If there is heavy snowfall overnight or in the morning do check these sites or the radio before setting off on your journey to school. We always endeavour to post a closure notice by 7am.

Accessing School 'snow work' 

Students are expected to complete school work assignments during a closure, and are advised also to use the time to revise. Work assignments will now be accessed via the school on-line learning platform, Firefly.
