Academy closure due to inclement weather conditions – Thursday 1st March 2018
The academy is always reluctant to authorise any school closure day because of the impact on the learning and progress of pupils and of course family arrangements, however, the decision to close to pupils and staff is made early in the morning, between 6.00 and 6.30am, to make the situation as manageable as possible. Factors taken into consideration when closing the academy today include -
pupils and staff being able to make their journey to school safely;
ensuring that enough teachers are in the academy to supervise pupils safely, enough site staff to keep the site heated and pathways clear and enough associate staff to provide services such as catering, administration and first aid;
pupils and staff being able to move around our site safely and not being at risk of injury through falls.
The situation regarding school closure will be reviewed throughout the day and our website will be updated with relevant information.
