Snow / Bad Weather

Snow / Bad Weather

In the event of snow or bad weather a decision will be made by the headteacher regarding whether it is safe to open the academy site. If the decision is made to close the academy this will be communicated via local radio, our website and through texts to parents/carers and staff. The staff ‘snow line’ will also operate.

In the event of a closure during the academy day, parents will be notified by text or telephone. All students will be kept safe until collected or authorisation is received from parents/carers that they may be released.

When possible a sign will be posted on the academy gate giving information.
