Emergency Closure Information
In some circumstances it may be necessary to take the decision to close the school site. The decision to close would only be taken if we cannot guarantee the Health and Safety of school users.
If a decision is made to close the school it will usually be made before 7.30am and is communicated to parents through a number of media which include text messages (if we can access the system) and the school website: http://www.sheptonmalletinfants.co.uk/
We would also post details of any closure on following Somerset County Council website https://slp.somerset.org.uk/SitePages/Home.aspx. The following radio stations should pick up school closures information from the above website for broadcast/publication on their website:
- BBC – Somerset Sound. 95.5 FM, 1566 MHz
- Heart FM. 102.6 FM, 96.5 FM (Taunton Area)
- Breeze FM. 100.8 FM, 102.4 FM, or 107.4 FM
- Tone FM 107.8 FM (Taunton & surrounding areas).
In the extremely unlikely event that the school needed to close during school time, parents and carers would be contacted via our texting service to alert them and of course we would remain open until all pupils are safely collected.
Please do make sure that we have up to date phone numbers for you throughout the school year.
