Emergency School Closure

On the rare occasion of Eversley Primary School having to close temporarily, for example for severe weather or a heating breakdown, parents will be informed of closure or a later start time through the following means:

  • A text message
  • A tweet will be posted to the school Twitter account: @EversleyP
  • The tweet will appear on the front page of the school website
  • A recorded answerphone message on the school phone system will inform parents of any closure/a later starting time
  • All school closures are listed on the Essex County Council website

Please be aware that school closures are no longer broadcast on BBC Essex or Heart Essex FM.

Sometimes it may be necessary to close during the school day and in such circumstances an alert will be sent by text message asking parents to collect children. No child will be sent home on their own but will be kept safe at school until they are collected.

Please remember to inform the office should your mobile phone number change.

Emergency closure is always taken as a last resort and decisions are made for the safety of your child and that of school staff.
