Severe weather conditions & school closure
In cases of extreme weather or circumstances beyond our control (e.g. burst pipes, central heating failure), it may be necessary to close our school to all pupils or to specific year groups. Such a decision will not be taken lightly and will only happen after careful consideration of the following:
Parents/carers will be informed of any closure as soon as a decision has been made, ideally the day before if possible.
This information will be made available to our parents via:
our school website: www.st-andrews-coventry.org.uk
local radio stations: BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, Free Radio, Radio Plus, Touch FM, Heart FM
Coventry council’s website: www.coventry.gov.uk/schoolclosures
and their social media pages: www.twitter.com/coventrycc and www.facebook.com/coventrycc
Parents and carers are requested not to telephone the media as this may impede communication between schools and the radio stations.
If possible, members of our school office team will also send emails/text messages to parents.
