Wherever possible, the decision to close the academy will be made before the teaching day commences, rather than defer the decision and delay the opening of the school. The Facilities/Site manager will assess the school site and inform the Principal of the state of site. A risk assessment of the site will be conducted in order to assess any potential hazards due to the weather conditions. Closing the academy is a reasonable decision if pupils or staff are at risk of serious injury due to adverse/extreme weather conditions / or other.
