Winter Weather Update
We had the first blast of wintry weather this week, with more expected in the coming weeks. Please see below for a reminder of the procedures that the school will follow in the event of snow/ice.
At Capel, we always do our utmost to keep the school open in the event of wintry weather. However, occasionally it may be necessary to close or partially close the school. In the event of snowy weather, please visit the "Snow Closures" website:
and search for Capel-le-Ferne Primary School to check the status of the school. We will update this website as soon as a decision has been taken over whether the school is open. Please DO NOT telephone the school in the first instance, as we will need to keep the telephone lines clear for outgoing calls. We will also post the details of the school status on the school website, and send a text message to parents as soon as possible after a decision has been made. There is another Capel School in Kent, and it is important that parents search for Capel-le-Ferne Primary School to get the relevant information about our school. In the event of snow arriving during the school day, school will remain open unless parents hear otherwise. Again, we ask that parents try and avoid contacting the school by telephone in these circumstances-we will update the relevant websites and text parents in the event of any changes.
