Emergency Closure

School Closure and Learning Packs

Important Notice to all our Preshute Families

With effect from 5pm Friday 20th March 2020, Preshute Primary School will be closed until further notice to most pupils, in accordance with the latest Government guidance relating to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Learning packs will be available for each year group from Monday 23 March on the relevant class pages on our website.

Provision will be made for hard copies, if required (refer to our recent ParentMail). However, most activities will not require printing.

We will be keeping in contact with all our families over the coming weeks via ParentMail and our website. New learning packs will also be uploaded at regular (currently we contemplate weekly) intervals.

In the meantime, keep safe and stay well.

In cases of adverse weather conditions or other situations that result in the school being closed at short notice, parents will be notified by:-

ParentMail, text message and/or email

This information will reach you as soon as possible.


A message on the home page of the school website.


Announcements made on BBC Radio Wiltshire and Heart FM, who will regularly update listeners of any schools that are closed. Information is also available on the BBC Radio Wiltshire website.

Cascade system

A senior member of staff will phone the Class Reps., who will then start off a cascade system to help filter information through.

In the event of worsening weather conditions or other situations occurring during the school day, the school may be required to close early, and to cancel after school clubs, including Fun Club. We will always endeavour to give you as much warning as possible that this might occur.

Again, you will be notified by ParentMail, text message and/or email. We may also contact you by telephone, if necessary.

Adverse weather impacts on health and safety, and local decisions are based on local conditions. Whilst we do our very best to keep our school open, we see the health and safety of our pupils and staff as our first priority.
