Kingswood Secondary Academy

Ofsted Good


In the event of severe weather, every effort will be made to keep the school open as normal. There are, however, circumstances when a school has no other reasonable option but to close. 

If this is the case it will be announced on our website by 7.15am on the day of closure.  We encourage parents to use our website as the first port of call. However we will also make any announcement of closure at

There may be times when the Academy day has started but during the day the weather deteriorates to a point where it is necessary to close before 3.00 pm.  We would quite clearly only take a decision to close in the most extreme circumstances and would always endeavour to remain open if at all possible. 

If you are happy for us to send your child home in the case of extreme weather or emergency, please complete and return the reply slip attached to the letter your child was given recently.  We will endeavour to arrange the usual Academy transport but this cannot be guaranteed as they may have other commitments at the time or may be unable to get to us due to the weather conditions.  Therefore it is advisable that you discuss with your child emergency arrangements to ensure there is no misunderstanding about how to return home in such circumstances.
