Extreme Weather

In the event of extreme weather, we will send a message out via Schoolcomms and a message will be put on the school website.


Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) have a school closure notification system (Everbridge Schools Closure Notification System) which will be used by Northgate to inform HCC if the school needs to close for any reason (including severe weather or during a public emergency). Parents can use this system and once registered any school closure notification will be sent to your mobile via text message or the email address you have entered on the system. 


Please go to https://member.everbridge.net/index/892807736725489#/signup to join the system.  It should take less than 5 minutes to register and you can edit your information at any time including if you change your mobile number or email address (we will not be able to do this on your behalf).


If you have previously joined please log in at https://member.everbridge.net/index/892807736725489#/login to check your details.


Where possible we will make a decision and notify you the night before closure.


School will open unless the weather is particularly severe.
