Bad weather information

 

 November 2019

 

For the attention of the Parent/Carer

 

Dear Parent/Carer

 

Information in the Event of a School Closure Due to Severe Weather

 

With winter upon us, I would like to remind you of the school’s procedures and how you can obtain information about whether the school is closed or not due to severe weather conditions. We will always attempt to keep the school open during periods of severe weather, however, in extreme events we must consider the safety of our pupils, staff and parents which may lead to a decision to close.

 

Warwickshire County Council Text Message Service for Parents

 

This service is an excellent way of finding out whether Campion is closed or not. Parents can sign up to the service each year and register for up to three schools (you may be using more than one school in your family). The service is FREE but parents must sign up to it each year – subscriptions to this service are updated annually by WCC. The service is available through the website:

www.warwickshire.gov.uk/schoolclosures

Warwickshire County Council uses this site to notify the local press and radio stations.

 

We recommend that parents subscribe via this website for the most up-to-date information.

 

School Notification

 

In the event that a decision is made early in the morning to close the school, our procedures are as follows:

 

·         Information is sent to the Warwickshire County Council School Closure Line (see above)

·         A Group Call message will be sent to all parents/carers from Campion School, which means it is very important that you contact the school at your earliest convenience if you update your mobile telephone number at any time during the school year

·         The school’s website (www.campion.warwickshire.sch.uk) will display a closure message

·         The school’s Twitter feed (@CampionSchool) will display a message

·         The school’s Facebook page (@campionsch) will display a message


 

Please continue to monitor the above information channels, on a daily basis, for further updates on whether the school will remain closed.

If you have any questions regarding the information above, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

 

Thank you for your continuing support.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Jassa Panesar

Head Teacher
