School - closures

Adverse weather conditions and other unexpected circumstances (such as heating failure) may sometimes lead to schools in Coventry being closed for safety reasons. The decision to close is taken on a school-by-school basis. Closures are announced each morning as soon as the headteacher has informed us, and the information has been verified.
