Emergency Closure

We always strive to keep the academy open for pupils but there may be cases when we have to close unexpectedly.

Notifying a closure

In case of an emergency closure, parents will be informed via text as early as we are able. For this reason, it is vital that you always make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details. A message will be posted on our website and, where possible, a notice on the school gates.

We will also notify Bradford Schools online which triggers information to local radio stations.

Where a closure has to happen during the school day we will follow the same process with texting as our first form of communication.
