As the winter progresses, we can expect a heavy snow fall at any time. While we make every effort to keep the school open, there may be times when we have to close, either for a full day or during the day.
We understand that the majority of our pupils live within walking distance of the academy and can get to school in most circumstances. However, many of our staff team live further afield and may have difficulty getting in during heavy snow, making it impossible to maintain our pupil to staff ratios. There are a number of other health and safety issues we need to consider to ensure the safety of everyone while they are in school.
In the event of snow, please note the following:
Assume Moor End Academy will be open in the first instance.
Check our website – we will add a banner message to the home page if we are closed or partially open.
Check your text messages/emails – we will let you know if the academy is going to be closed for the day as early as we can. We will also let you know if the academy needs to close during the day by text/email. If you do not receive text messages/emails from the academy, please let the office have your mobile number/email address.
Check the Kirklees website here – they will list the schools/academies that are closed or partially closed.
Please do not telephone the academy – we try to keep these lines open so that staff can contact us to let us know their situation.
