Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you for your support in the early closure of the Academy today.
We are sorry to inform you that all schools in the Olympus Academy Trust will be closed on Friday 2nd March 2018, this includes Winterbourne International Academy.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause families and assure you that the decision has not been taken lightly. In making our decision, we have taken into consideration the following factors:
- Current local weather conditions and forecast, including the Met Office amber warning for tonight (albeit downgraded from red)
- The impact of the weather on our school sites and being able to guarantee that anyone on site will be safe
- The likelihood of sufficient numbers of staff being able to make it into school to provide appropriate supervision tomorrow
- The withdrawal of all school transport services for tomorrow by South Gloucestershire Council
Having considered these factors carefully, we believe it is the right decision to close our schools until Monday 5th March 2018, when they will open again at the usual time.
Thank you for your continued support. Please stay safe and warm.
Winterbourne International Academy
