Emergency Closure Information

Adverse weather

We aim to remain open during all types of adverse weather conditions, providing this can be done in a safe manner.

In the event of extreme weather conditions, such as heavy snow, which can cause unsafe conditions, a decision regarding whether the academy can safely open can usually only be made on the morning. The safety of the site would be risk assessed and an update will be posted as early as possible on our website, communicated to parents and carers via text, posted on social media, posted on Derbyshire County Council’s website and via the local radio.

As the weather gets colder, please ensure your child is sent to school wearing appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.

Please note that communicating by text message is by far the most effective method of communicating urgent information. We would be very grateful if parents/carers could ensure that we are kept informed of any change of mobile number or any other contact information.

If you require any further information on emergency closure please email: [email protected].
