We will endeavour to keep King Alfred’s open at all times should snow fall during the next few months. Even in extreme circumstances, we hope to keep Centre Site open for exam classes. However, if heavy snow falls overnight and local conditions make the journey to King Alfred’s for students and staff too risky, the Headteacher may take the decision to close all or any one of the sites.
This decision will be made early in the morning and the information will be published on our web site (www.kaacademy.org) and broadcast in one of the regular bulletins on local radio (BBC Radio Oxford VHF/FM 95.2 and Heart VHF/FM 102.6). Please do not ring the academy as this will block the phone lines and we need to keep these open in case of emergency. The message on the website will be accurate and clear and contain details about when the academy will re-open.
Should heavy snow start to fall during the day, the bus companies may advise that students are collected earlier than normal. If this is the case, all information will be put on our web site and broadcast on local radio. Please ensure that your son/daughter has your up-to-date contact details should they need to contact you directly, particularly as your own routine may be affected by the weather.
