How do I check that the academy is open when there is bad weather?
- The academy will attempt to send a Groupcall text message to all staff and parents. Please do not phone the academy – if we are closed because of heavy snow it is unlikely anyone will be available to answer the phone.
- School closure information will be available on Calderdale Council's website: Schools emergency closures page.
- BBC Radio Leeds and The Pulse radio stations will inform listeners of school/academy closures. BBC Radio Leeds (92.4 FM or DAB) and The Pulse (97.5 FM or DAB) will have been notified by the academy that it is not able to open and they will broadcast this message on our behalf. Announcements usually happen at quarter past and quarter to the hour from about 6.45 am onwards.
