The policy of the Local Authority is that they will make the decision whether or not to close schools in the event of heavy snowfall across the whole city. Any decisions affecting whether all schools will stay open or close will be made by 6.45am at the latest and will be announced on Radio WM, Heart FM and Free Radio (Birmingham). In the event that our school has to close due to unique factors affecting the school for example burst pipes or heating failure, we will let parents know as soon as possible through announcements on local radio and a recorded message on the school phone, via Twitter and our website. In the event of severe weather conditions, please do not send unaccompanied children without checking with the school first. Lets hope these procedures won’t be necessary this winter!
