Severe Weather Information

If a decision is made to close the school, we will advise: Essex County Council




Local radio stations. We will also send a text message via Parentmail to the mobile number you have specified (please ensure this is kept up to date) and post information on our website.


If your child travels by bus the school will, in the event of a closure, inform the company. If the school remains open, please be aware that not all staff may be present and nor would we expect all the children from surrounding areas to necessarily be able to make their way into school safely. Under these circumstances, school registration would stay open until 10:00am to enable you to slowly and safely make your way into school and prevent potentially dangerous congestion outside the school in icy conditions. However, every effort will be made to keep the school open.


In the event of the weather changing drastically during the school day when the children are already in school we will inform you at the earliest opportunity through parentmail, the school website, text or phone.

We have moved website. Please visit our new Christ The King Federation website at:

This existing website is no longer valid and will be removed at the end of December 2020.
