School Closure 2nd November 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,


You may already be aware that due to Storm Ciarán a major incident has been declared in Southampton and nearby coastal areas. This is therefore likely to affect a large number of our children and staff, and hinder the safety of their journeys to and from school. 


This means that both Cupernham Junior and Infants Schools as well as other schools in the area will be closed on Thursday 2nd November for all children. Unless you hear otherwise, the school will be open as normal on Friday 3rd November.


As the forecast indicates that severe weather is due to calm after school hours (at around 4pm), the PTA fireworks event is still planning to go ahead. We are in consultation with the professional contractors to ensure it will be safe to continue.  Should this change, you will be notified as soon as possible.


We look forward to reopening safely to all children and staff on Friday.


Please keep yourselves safe during this time. Many thanks for your continued support and understanding in making this decision.


Kind regards,


Mr Frost and Mr Wells
