Will never forget meeting an Auschwitz survivor. Will never forget the tattoo on her arm or her story

PRE visit: excellent exhibition at the Galicia Jewish museum followed by student workshops and a meeting with an Auschwitz survivor, a former child prisoner who was a subject of Dr Mengele's experiments, who told us about her story and showed us her number tattoo. Very moving. https://t.co/ZwCqYSY32K

This will be one of the most memorable school trips Hinchley Wood students will make in their school years.

PRE visit: back at the hotel after nearly 16 hours out. Mr B's gadget says we have walked 11.1 miles, Mr C's says 11km. In any case it's been a good but hard day. Very moving visit to Auschwitz this morning, students laid candles and had a moment of reflection at the memorials. https://t.co/2Xav3CzUZ0

Successful first day in Krakow for the PRE visit - walked at least six miles, had lush food and learnt lots. Hopefully an earlyish night before our visit to the Auschwitz museum tomorrow. https://t.co/TBAh1oojLu

Adverse Weather Protocol

Please note, in the event of a severe weather warning that may affect the school’s normal opening hours, the following procedures will be put in place:

  • As soon as we are alerted to severe weather an email will be sent to parents with regular updates (if you know of a parent that would not receive an email we would ask that you would help them by notifying them there may be a closure)
  • Any decision to close the school will be made by 7am.  Information will be emailed to parents and posted on the front page of the website.
  • www.hinchleywoodschool.co.uk will be updated on a regular basis – you will need to refresh your browser if you stay logged on to the website
  • Wherever possible, we will have the school phone manned for telephone queries.
  • There will be a skeleton staff manning the telephones and to be on hand should a student not get the message and arrive at school.  

What happens if the weather deteriorates during the school day?

  • The school will only close in the event of severe weather or on advice from the Local Authority.  The decision will be made by the Headteacher.
  • The decision will be posted on the website, sent by email and students will be permitted to text a dictated message to parents.
  • Wherever possible, we will arrange for the school buses to come early.
  • Students that are normally collected will be instructed to contact parents for advice on what to do.
  • Students walking home will be advised to walk in groups.
  • School will be kept opened and appropriately staffed until the last student has left the building.
  • Please note that staff are not permitted to give lifts to students.

How you can help:

  • Relay the message to anyone you know not able to be contacted by the school.
  • Where possible, keep regular checks on the school website.
  • Talk through the procedure with your son/daughter and plan with them what they should do in the event of bad weather.
