We would like to inform parents of the procedures the Academy will follow in the event of an emergency Academy closure due to severe weather.
The decision to close the school unexpectedly will not be taken lightly, in all cases we will seek to avoid an Academy closure. We will aim to maintain our service to students and parents for as long as is reasonably practical. The safety of the children and staff will be our priority.
Once the decision to close the school has been made by the Headteacher the following procedures will be implemented:
• Parents will be informed of the closure by SMS text message, if possible by 8:00am
• The Academy website will display an alert message: www.thornhillcommunityacademy.co.uk
If the closure lasts for more than one day, a further text message will be sent to parents.
Please keep checking the Academy website as this will be updated regularly to keep you informed.
