  • Snow and bad weather

    9th January 2017

    In the event of bad weather it is always the priority of the academy to remain open and as such the site team will work to ensure that the site is both accessible and safe.

    There are however rare instances where the academy might not be able to open as normal as a result of severe weather. In such instances any changes to the usual opening arrangements will be communicated by a text system to let parents know if the academy is closed due to bad weather. It will also be announced on https://bso.bradford.gov.u
