Danesholme Junior Academy

Extreme Weather Plan

Please be advised that the school will be closed on Friday 2 March due to the extremem weather conditions.

The Academy aims to remain open in the event of snow; in these circumstances our normal curriculum may need to be adjusted according to staffing levels and pupil ratios. We will take the children outside to play in the snow, so please ensure that they have appropriate clothing for snow play including extra socks and a change of footwear.

In the event of very extreme weather conditions, for the safety of children and staff, it may be necessary to close the academy. Please be assured that we will take the decision to close only if it is absolutely necessary. We will notify parents of the situation at Danesholme Junior Academy by text – please make sure we have your most recent mobile phone number so that you receive all relevant information.

The County website address for checking school closure is www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/ismyschoolclosed and our own website will be updated. Local radio stations will regularly broadcast school closure updates (BBC Radio Northampton - 104.2 & 103.6 FM, Heart Radio - 96.6 FM, Connect 97.2 & 107.4 FM, Corby Radio - 96.3 FM).
