Academy Closures and Adverse Weather

The Academy will make every effort to remain open whenever possible.

The decision to close the Academy either before or during the school day will be made by the Principal. The Academy will only be closed if one or more of the following conditions apply:

  • Insufficient staff are able to come in to keep the school running safely.
  • Conditions on site are dangerous
  • Conditions are considered to be or are anticipated to later become too hazardous for travel.

In the event of adverse weather or an emergency closure, the Principal will make a decision based on student and staff health and safety as early as possible. Details of the closure will be displayed on the website and emailed to parents via Edulink One. Norfolk County Council will add the details of the school closure to the list on their website.

Please follow the link to the policies page for relevant policies (adverse weather policy).

The Academy will make every effort to keep parents informed as to the situation during adverse weather conditions, as we appreciate that such conditions and the uncertainty place very considerable difficulties upon parents. However, parents are expected to check the website and/or make themselves aware when it is clear that closure is a possibility.
