In cases of extreme weather the school may need to close for health and safety reasons.
If severe weather is giving you cause for concern please check this page for an update.
This page will only be updated if the school is shut!
The local radio will be informed as soon as a decision has been made to close the school. Tune into BBC Radio Essex 103.5 and 95.3 FM, 729, 765, and 1530 AM and DAB for the latest information.
In such circumstances the volume of calls to the BBC will be large but the information will be broadcast as soon as possible.
Information should also be available on the BBC website.
