    WCC Emergency Messaging Service

    We would like to encourage all parents/carers to sign up for the Warwickshire Emergency Messaging Service, which, if the school had to close for any reason, will ensure that you are texted once the school has informed the Local Authority.

    Please note that you must update your request annually as registration expires each August.
