Emergency Sixth Form Closure Procedure

In the event of adverse weather and/or hazardous travelling conditions, Higham Lane Sixth Form would like to outline its Emergency School Closure Procedure.

The Sixth Form does its utmost to keep parents and carers informed at the earliest opportunity regarding an emergency closure. Therefore, information can be obtained from a number of sources.

Keeping you Updated

This is done in three main ways:

  • Text message to parents'/carers' mobile phones via the Sixth Form's `Iris Reach/MyEd' messenger system.
  • The Higham Lane Sixth Form website, Higham Lane Sixth Form's Twitter account @HLSSixthForm & Higham Lane Sixth Form's Instagram account hlsixthform
  • Local radio - BBC Coventry & Warwickshire (94.8 FM/103.7FM/104FM), Free Radio (97 FM/102.9 FM) and Oak FM (107.9 FM).

Closing a school is never an easy option so, before making the decision to close, the Headteacher will undertake a rigorous risk assessment and decide if there is significant risk of severe injury, ill health or inability to comply with relevant legislation.

A decision is taken on the basis of weather forecasts and on-the-spot observations, and this is why closures are often decided on the morning itself.

A full list of sixth form closures for the area can be found at

Bad Weather Journeys

In the event of the Sixth Form remaining open when roads are potentially dangerous, please take great care on your journey. If you feel your child is at risk or danger travelling to and from school, or you consider the journey to be too dangerous for yourselves, please keep him/her at home.

If you are able to transport your child to school, please take care in hazardous conditions. Leave yourself plenty of time and be considerate when dropping off and picking up pupils as roads around the Sixth Form can become congested at peak times.
