It is extremely rare that New Forest School closes due to weather or other circumstances. Where possible we will modify the school day to adapt to the weather/situation. For example, we may:

  • Limit lessons that take place off site (farm, PE, Outdoor Education) to reduce travel requirements
  • Arrange a later start or earlier finish to the day to provide more time for travel
  • Discuss alternative arrangements for those students who travel a significant distance to reach the school

Whenever there is advance warning of possible disruption due to weather conditions, New Forest School will try to contact all parents/carers to highlight the fact.

In order to communicate all information during these times, New Forest School will:

  • Make use of our text message service to communicate with parents/carers
  • Attempt to make phone contact to all parents/carers
  • Post a tweet to our twitter account
  • Place a message on the homepage of this website
