Adverse Weather Policy

ADVERSE WEATHER / CLOSURE POLICY

 

Learning is at the heart of everything we do, however health & safety is our number priority, at all times.

 

In the event of extreme weather conditions or an emergency closure see below:

 

ACADEMY OPEN

 

  1. The Academy will OPEN providing all reasonable measures are put in place to do so safely. (the final decision will be made by the Principal of the Academy).

  2. If the Academy is open, we would encourage students to attend wherever possible, but as road conditions vary parents must make the final decision on whether it is safe for their child to travel.

  3. Students who are late should report to Student Services and providing every reasonable attempt has been made to attend, no child will be punished for being late.

  4. On arrival at the Academy students will be allowed to come inside and wait in the Atrium if the weather is severe – the Principal will make this decision.

 

ACADEMY CLOSED

  1. A notice will be posted on the Academy’s website page by 7.30am or as soon as possible thereafter.
  2. Lincs FM (102.2) and Radio Humberside (95.9) will broadcast details of all closures so please tune in. (please note: Radio Stations are inundated with calls at peak times and will only accept school closure notices. They will not broadcast a list of schools that are OPEN). For up to date information please log onto the following radio station websites

Please try to avoid telephoning the academy as this simply blocks the lines for other incoming and outgoing calls.  Check the website and radio stations throughout the day for the latest information.
