Emergency Closure

In the unlikely event of storm damage or bad weather (snow) forcing the Academy to close, the following procedure will be taken:

Closure before Academy begins (ie overnight or before 8am):

  • Information will be broadcast on Radio Cornwall, Pirate FM and Heart FM. Our website will be updated as soon as possible and messages will be posted on social media.
  • Any students who reach the Academy will be turned back unless they have no safe place to return to. In the case that they cannot return, parents/carers will be informed and the student looked after.
  • We will also send a text and an email to all parents who have registered their number with us.

Closure during the Academy day:

  • Messages will go out on local radio and on the Academy website and social media.
  • We will also use the text system for those parents/carers who are registered with us.
  • Students will be sent home if they have a safe place to return to. Any student who cannot return home, will be looked after at the Academy until the parents/carers can be contacted.

We assume most students can make their way home and gain access to a safe, warm place, usually your child’s home or that of a friend or relative, if the Academy closes during the day.
