Emergency School Closures

There are many reasons why school may have to close at short-notice. Please be aware of the following procedures that will be followed in the event of any Emergency Closure. This information may also be downloaded as a PDF by clicking here.

Procedure For When School Closure Is Before 8.50am

In the event of an emergency school closure, announcements will be  made via:

  • BBC Radio Humberside

  • Viking Radio

  • Minster FM

  • KCFM

  • BBC Radio York

  • Galaxy FM

If possible, a text message will be sent to parents/carers and a notice placed on the school and council websites.

Procedure For When School Closure Occurs During the School Day

A text message will be sent to all parents/carers and a notice placed on the school and council websites.

Parents/carers are asked to collect their children from the classrooms where they would usually be dismissed in an afternoon. The member of staff will remove your child from the register upon collection.

Please ensure that your collection of pupils details are kept up to date. You can do this by emailing the school office (kingsway.primary@eastriding.gov.uk).

If your child normally walks home alone from school you must contact the school to give permission for your child to do so. Again, you will be asked some security questions.

NO CHILD WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE UNLESS WE HAVE A SIGNATURE AND/OR APPROPRIATE PERMISSION. Children will be looked after by staff until collected.
