A ‘yellow’ warning for snow has been issued for this week, accompanied by warnings of very low temperatures. We will always make every effort to keep our academy open but in the event of extreme weather, or loss of essential services, the academy may need to follow emergency closure procedures:
- In the case of bad weather please listen for announcements of school closures on the following local radio stations:
|Radio Station||Frequencies||Closed schools broadcast times|
|BBC Radio Suffolk(www.bbc.co.uk/suffolk)||95.5/ 95.9/ 103.9/ 1.04.6 FM||10 past the hour; 20 to the hour
- You may also find it helpful to visit the Suffolk County Council website dedicated to school closures at the following link: http://schoolclosures.suffolk.gov.uk
- Provision closure information will also be posted on our academy website at https://apsuffolk.oliveacademies.org.uk/ and on our twitter account @OASuffolkC
- It is your responsibility to take account of local conditions and decide whether children should set out for school, especially if a long road journey is involved. Should your taxi company advise that it is unsafe to travel in your local area, please advise the relevant Olive AP Academy – Suffolk (Central) site immediately.
- Please make sure that children know what to do if the Olive AP Academy sites have to close early due to bad weather and they arrive home before the normal time. We will telephone you or your emergency contact number if this happens.
