Emergency Closure Procedure

THERE COULD BE A NUMBER OF REASON WHY THE ACADEMY MAY CLOSE EARLY OR NOT OPEN AT ALL FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS. THE MOST COMMON REASON WOULD BE BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER.

Snow: If there is a significant snowfall overnight our staff will assess the local situation and will make a decision by 7.00am as to whether the Academy will be closed for the day. A text will then be sent out informing parents of the decision. Our switchboard will be open with a recorded message as soon as a decision is reached.

If you think your mobile number may have changed since it was last taken or want to make sure it is correct please contact our office. office@theeastbourneacademy.org.

You can also subscribe to an East Sussex alert system that will inform you by mobile or email if we are closed for a reason. It is located on the East Sussex County Council website.
