At Dixons City, we try wherever possible, to remain open so that we do not disrupt our student's education. We only close if the site is unsafe, insufficient staff can travel, or the buses have stopped and most children cannot attend.
The decision to close will be sent to parents via our text messaging service by 6.30am at the latest. We will also post a message on the website and inform all local radio stations. Please do not ring the school to enquire if we are open as this jams the phone lines and means that staff can not inform us whether they can travel. We need to know this to plan a safe and productive day for students if we are open.
If you do not hear anything, it means that the Academy is open.
