Information regarding snow/bad weather
If there is snow or bad weather we have every intention if at all possible of keeping the school open. Your child should expect to attend school as normal – even if the weather forecast is snow.
On rare occasions the school has to take a decision to close because of bad weather conditions.
When a decision to close is made, we immediately inform Warwickshire County Council School Closures service. The information usually appears on their website within 20 minutes. We update our school website and send out a group call message.
Where to get information:
A) We will aim to send out a group call message as soon as possible. Please make sure that we have your up to date contact details.
B) You may register with the WCC for a free text alert service at You can use this to get alerts for up to 3 different schools about closures. Setting up the account needs to be in advance of closure days and if you set this up last year, you will need to do it again this academic year.
C) You can follow tweets from @wccschoolclosed (become a follower online at twitter.com/wccschoolclosed ).
D) You may access the LA website that will list all schools that are closed. Click on the link to Schools & Learning pages, then the link School Closures SMS Alerts – sign up. This page has a link to all schools that are currently closed.
F) Local Radio stations have access to the school closures site but cannot be relied upon to mention all schools.
