Adverse Weather Emergency School Closure

The procedure Cottenham Village College will follow in the event of the school having to close at short notice.

The decision to close the school will be made before 7am in the light of all available information, including weather/travel reports, consultation with staff local to CVC, advice from the Local Authority and other relevant sources. Once the decision is made it will be communicated in the following ways:

* Parents/Carers will be contacted via Parent Mail.

* There will be a message posted on the front of the school website.

* Local radio stations will be informed to broadcast this information.

We will always endeavour to keep the school open and parents/carers should assume that the school is open unless the above communication has been actioned.
