Monday 11th December – School Closure

Posted on December 10th, 2017 Monday 11th December – School Closure

Dear Parents and Carers,

Please be aware that the decision has now been taken to close Woodfield Academy on Monday 11th December 2017.

The decision has been made based on: the current adverse conditions, the forecast freezing conditions overnight and throughout Monday morning; the suspension of local public transport; conditions further afield that affect a large number of our staff getting into school; above all, we take everybody’s health and safety very seriously and conditions on and around our school site are treacherous.

I appreciate there has been criticism regarding Friday’s ‘late’ decision to close. Usually the decision would be made by 7am, but we cannot control the weather! I fully understand the frustration that school closure causes and a late decision only adds to this. In light of this criticism, I hope this much earlier notification is helpful to you and that you will be able to make appropriate arrangements for your children in time for tomorrow.

There will be site clearance taking place throughout the day on Monday and hopefully, weather permitting, we will be able to operate normally again after this date.
