Academy Closure

The decision to close New Rickstones Academy rests with the Head of Academy and the Senior Leadership Team.  The school will only be closed as a last resort e.g. if travelling becomes hazardous or if the site is not safe for students and staff.

However, should it become necessary to close because of the weather or other reason, information will be broadcast on BBC Essex (103.5/95.3 FM), and Heart FM (96.3/106.2 FM).

News and information about the academy's closure will also be displayed at the top of the home page of the academy website.

Once a decision has been made to re-open after a closure, this information will be communicated via the website.
