In the unlikely event of the academy having to close due to bad weather, or for any other reason, the following steps will be taken to notify parents/carers:
- A text will be sent to all parents/carers
- Local radio stations will be notified
- The academy's social media accounts and website will be updated
- KCC's website will be updated (www.kentclosures.co.uk)
If the academy is required to close during the school day, each student will be required to call his/her parent/carer, in the presence of their form tutor, to arrange collection or to request permission to make their own way home. No student must leave the site without prior permission from a parent/carer.
Please note, in the event of a school closure, work will be uploaded to the VLE for students to access from home.
