Adverse weather conditions

It’s winter time which might mean snow. We’ve had the aftermath of Storm
Jonas, and now Storm Gertrude is on the way. Hopefully we won’t get hit too
hard and we can carry on with business as usual. However, if we do have to
close the academy, we need a contingency plan.

Any decision to close the academy will be posted on the academy website
immediately. We will also communicate the decision on the academy facebook
page and attempt to get a text message to as many parents as possible, so
it is vital that you keep us informed of up-to-date phone numbers and email
addresses. Having informed Walsall Children’s Services of the decision,
they will communicate it further using their website
http://school-closures.co.uk.

If we have to close the academy during the day and send the children home,
we will communicate the decision as explained above, but I have to ask you
to make special plans for your children to get home safely, just in case of
an emergency. This may mean walking home; staying with a friend or
neighbour; having a house key available; or whatever is needed to ensure
they are safely cared for. If it is not possible for you to put a plan
together for your child, please let them know and they will be looked after
by academy staff until the end of the normal academy day.

These measures are only for extreme cases, and hopefully we will not have
to action them, but I would welcome your support…..just in case!

R. D. Beech – Principal
