Extreme Weather Procedure

Thursday 12 January 2017

Dear Parents/Carers,

The National and Local Press have released nationwide extreme weather warnings for snow and ice across the region. If weather conditions are such that there is a possibility of school closure – please take the following actions:

  • Listen to Radio Solent – if the school is closed Radio Solent will issue regular bulletins throughout the morning listing schools that are closed or partially closed.
  • Check the school website – as soon as a decision is made to close the school our website is updated to that effect.
  • Please do not phone the school to ask if we are open – this simply jams the school switchboard.

In the event of weather conditions worsening during the school day we may take the decision to close the Academy, if conditions/the school site are deemed unsafe or we believe there is a significant impact to transport links. Should this be the case we will confirm arrangements with parents before we send students home.
