City of Norwich School

Severe weather protocol

Severe weather/academy closure

In case of severe weather conditions City of Norwich School, An Ormiston Academy will remain open unless a closure is absolutely necessary.

The school must consider the safety of both students and staff travelling to and from school and safety when moving around the school site.

If a decision is made to close the school in the morning, this will normally be taken by 7am and the message will be issued via: -

  • Local radio announcements;
  • Norfolk County Council – School Closures webpage;
  • A note on the home page of the school website and the school social media pages. Website: www.cns-school.org;
  • Twitter: @cns_school
  • Facebook: www.facebook.com/CNSschool

If the school is open and the weather conditions deteriorate through the day causing difficulties with getting home, please make sure that your child knows how they should contact you and that you have nominated a place of safety where they can go (if not home).

We wish to reassure you that any decision about closing the school will not be taken lightly.
