Severe Weather Guidelines

  • The school is committed to staying open if at all possible when there is severe weather.
  • Parents must decide whether it is safe for their child to get to school.
  • If conditions get worse during the day, parents should email the school attendance@tgs.kent.sch.uk if it is necessary to collect your child before the end of the day.
  • Only collect your child before the end of the day if their safety is at risk.
