The closure of Westbourne Academy under severe weather conditions follows a precise procedure.
In a time of severe weather (flood, fog, snow, high winds etc) we will update this website with regular information as to whether the school is closed. The decision is normally made around 7am on each day.
The Local Authority also has a website dedicated to providing information on any school closures, and this can be found at http://schoolclosures.suffolk.gov.uk.
We use a text messaging service whereby we normally text parents to keep them informed of any unplanned closures or changes to the school day. It is therefore very important that parents tell the academy if they change their mobile phone number.
Announcements will also be given on local radio stations; please listen to the following radio stations from 7am for any announcement of closure.
BBC Radio Suffolk 103.9 FM
Town 102 102 FM
