Adverse Weather

In the event of extreme weather (or other factors outside of the academy’s control) The De La Salle Academy will always seek to remain open.  However should conditions require a delayed start or closure we will inform parents via the following means:

Delayed start -this allows students extra time to arrive due to poor conditions:

  • All parents will receive a text message which includes appropriate information on the opening times and dates
  • Academy answer phone message.
  • Information will be placed on the home page of our website
  • Messages will be broadcast via local radio – Radio City, Radio Merseyside

All students will be looked after from when they arrive at the academy and will start lessons at the identified time.

Students will report to the following designated areas upon their arrival:

  • Years 7 and 8 will report to the main hall
  • Years 9 and 10 will report to the heartspace
  • Year 11 will report to the canteen

Form tutors and other staff will be assigned to each area to supervise students.

Closure before the academy day starts:

  • All parents will receive a text message which includes appropriate information on the closure times and dates
  • Information will be placed on the home page of our website
  • Messages will be broadcast via local radio – Radio City, Radio Merseyside
  • Academy answer phone message

Closure during the academy day:

  • All students will be given a letter to take home explaining the reason for the closure.
  • All students will be held in the academy until parental contact has been established and agreement has occurred on how the student will travel home
  • Information will be placed on our website
  • Messages will be broadcast via local radio – Radio City, Radio Merseyside
  • Academy answer phone message

If the weather is particularly bad, please check the www.liverpool.gov.uk website for information on roads and academy opening / closing.
