When the weather turns colder and the nights are getting darker, please ensure that all children are dressed appropriately. Coats, hats and scarves should be worn to keep out the cold. Turning on the radiators, often means the air is drier and children feel the need to drink more. Please ensure that your children bring water bottles into school as these are taken with them into the hall during lunchtime.
Although water is available from the drinking water fountains, it is always nicer for the children to have their own with them. We are selling water bottles with the Cubitt Town logo on them and these can be purchased from the school office for £1.
Could you please ensure that your children are dressed appropriately for the weather and that sunscreen is applied before they come into school. Hats and water are essentials.
During severe weather we will always update this website with the most recent information, alternativley you can use the LGfL Open Check service to see if the school is open.
To telephone the Open Check service call 020 8408 7508 and use the code 211 2144 when requested.
Cubitt Town Junior School will stay open if at all possible when there is a severe weather such as deep /drifting snow, very high winds, widespread flooding.
Parents and carers have responsibility of getting children/pupils to and from school safely and need to decide if the journey is safe when severe weather affects transport and/or walking conditions.
Parents and carers should inform the school if their child is absent due to severe conditions making the journey unsafe. If your child has a disability and/or learning difficulty your decision to take the journey must take this into consideration. Please consider carefully and only keep children at home if conditions are unsafe.
If on the rare occasion school closes at a time within the school day, parents/carers will be informed by telephone.
If conditions worsen in the school day and parents feel it is absolutely necessary to collect children, the school should if possible be contacted prior to collection. Please avoid collecting children before the end of the day unless you feel their safety is at risk.
Please ensure your son/daughter is appropriately clothed for cold/wet/windy weather and that shoes/boots have a good grip for icy conditions.
