School Closure Information

Over the holidays we currently have no demand for provision for critical workers children. However if you are a critical worker and require childcare, please contact the school office by emailing infoljs@istnorfolk.co.uk.  We aim to respond within 24 hours.

Our school will only be closed if one or more of the following conditions apply:

  • Not enough adult supervision to ensure the health and safety supervision of our children
  • Directed to by the Local Authority,  Inclusive Schools Trust, Public Health England or another Advisory Body

Steps taken to decide on whether to close the school will be as follows

  • The Headteacher will liaise with the Local Authority and inform the Chair of the Trust and a joint decision will be made whether our school should be open or not
  • The decision to open our school, or not, will be communicated to staff and parents via:

Our school website,
Text Messaging/Email
Social Media
Local Authority and local media websites.
Decisions will be made and communicated by 3pm each subsequent day.
