Emergency School Closure
OpenCheck allows you to check the status of the school on any given day. This is an easy-to-use service which presents information regarding school closures in case of emergency, severe weather or any news which may affect children’s ability to attend or access the school.
OpenCheck is also available via an app called ParentComms, which is available for smartphones.
In the event of bad weather, parents should check to see if the school is open before travelling to the site. There are a number of ways to confirm whether the school is open or closed including:
- Open Check website – use the dropdown menus to find our school.
- Open Check Phone Service: 02084087508 and our school number – 3145200 for message
- Our school website - https://www.stlukes.kingston.sch.uk/
- Radio Jackie - use http://www.radiojackie.com/
- Email - please check these as we may be able to update parents through ParentMail messages.
If the school is closed, we will try and make a decision as early as possible, and will intend to re-open as soon as we can.
