Emergency School Closures
EMERGENCY PROCEDURES FOR SCHOOL CLOSURES
In the event of extreme weather conditions (heavy snow fall), the Director of
Education may choose to close schools across the whole of Birmingham. Although this is not Welford’s decision, we are not able to open school
as we do not have any control. See below for how you will be notified.
If the Governors and I decide to close the school for local emergency reasons, we will notify parents in the following ways:
We will send a text message to the Primary Contact on our system
Look at our website (www.welford.bham.sch.uk)
Look at Class Dojo (https://www.classdojo.com/)
Look at our Twitter feed (@WelfordPrimary)
Listen to local radio stations – BBC WM & Free Radio
Look at the Local Authority website (www.birmingham.gov.uk)
PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CONTACT NUMBER IS UPDATED WITH THE OFFICE.
