In the event of severe weather or an emergency closure the Principal will make a decision as early as possible, based on student and staff health and safety.
Once a decision has been made to close the school, the following actions will take place:
> A text message will be sent to parents / carers
> An email will be sent to all staff
> Isle of Wight Council and Isle of Wight Radio will be informed
Isle of Wight Council will add the details of the school closure to the list on their website.
In an event where it starts to snow during the day, a decision based on the safety of students and staff will be taken by the Principal of whether the academy needs to close. Parents will be contacted via the above methods in any such occasion.
