Winter Weather Information


WINTER WEATHER UPDATES

We have had bad weather arrangements in place for many years, for the safety of students, parents and the staff. However, it is our experience that as soon as snow arrives, the school switchboard becomes jammed with messages and queries from anxious parents. This not only overwhelms our support staff, but also prevents bus companies from being able to get through and update us about any changes to student collection arrangements. 

We would therefore ask that parents do NOT phone unless it is an emergency, but to work with the arrangements set out below. Whatever the weather conditions, please always assume that the school will be kept fully open as normal.  

IN THE EVENT OF SNOW CLOSING THE SCHOOL: 

Parents will receive a text from 'Woodkirk' and a message will appear at the top of our website. In addition, further information can be heard on BBC Radio Leeds.  Every effort will be made for a message to be posted on the website before 7am should the school be forced to close. If parents do not receive a closure text or there is not a message on the website, the Academy is OPEN.
