Emergency School Closure

Should we need to close the school due to severe weather conditions or other emergency you will receive a Groupcall text message on your mobile phone.
This is our school-home communication system. The system uses the ‘Priority 1 mobile phone number’ for your child. If you do not receive a text, please inform the office and they will look into it at the next available opportunity.
Information will also be available from one of the following:
  • A message will be left on the school answer phone
  • A tweet from @orchardprimary, which also links to The Orchard Primary Parents' Facebook page
  • Information will be posted on the Herts Direct website
Cold Weather
Please make sure that your child comes to school dressed in an appropriate manner. They should have a warm waterproof coat, hats and gloves and sensible walking shoes. If your child wishes to wear boots or wellingtons to school, they must bring in their black school shoes to change into.
Please also take extra care in icy weather when walking around the site. We work very hard to grit the pathways, but inevitably due to the large site, some areas may stay icy throughout the day.
