School Closure Procedures
In case of severe weather conditions, we thought it would be helpful to remind you of arrangements if St Gregory’s was forced to close due to severe weather conditions.
Also could we remind parents that it is VITAL we have your up to date contact number as our prime method of communication should we have to close the school is via text and email via the school’s Parentpay system. Please log on to your Parentpay account to check that your contact details are up to date.
If the decision is taken to close the school, the Headteacher will place a notification on the Warwickshire website at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/schoolclosures. It is possible for parents to register on this website to receive text messages regarding school closures.
School closure advice will be broadcast via BBC Coventry and Warwickshire radio and via Twitter @StGregsStrat.
With regard to school closure a decision will only be made to close the school as a last resort and if any of the following apply:
- Concerns about the safety and the accessibility of the site and surrounding area.
- Unavailability of heat, light, power and water.
- Unavailability of staff.
- Unavailability of meals.
- Concerns for pupils and staff travelling safely to and from school.
We will always endeavour to let you know as soon as possible.
Please note unless circumstances are extreme we will avoid closing the school early.
