GUILSBOROUGH ACADEMY IS CLOSED FRIDAY 15 DECEMBER

Guilsborough Academy will be closed to staff and students on Friday 15 December 2017 due to Health and Safety concerns related to the weather.

We cannot believe after everything we have all done this week we are having to close.  However, we will always put staff and student health and safety first.

The the bus company have cancelled the buses.  On top of this the site has masses of sheet ice, which is not physically possible to move for the start of school to make the site safe.

We are sorry that this will cause inconvenience and have tried to let everyone know as soon as possible.

We plan to be open on Monday 18 December 2017. 

Students will be set class work by their teachers through the VLE and by email.  Students should log-on to the VLE at https://gsat.sharepoint.com/sites/classes/SitePages/Home.aspx to view the class work set and check their emails via https://outlook.office.com/owa.

Year 9 Parents' Evening Cancelled

I am sorry to say we are postponing the Year 9 parents evening tonight, due to the snow melting and turning into ice as the temperatures drop.  We predict that this will only become worse as we go into the evening.

We will let you know a new date once we have had time to review the calendar.

Thank you for your understanding.

Weather Update

Our site team are working very hard on clearing the site again today, to make it safe for use. However, we will not know if it is safe until tomorrow morning, due to the forecast freezing conditions.
The bus company have also told us that they will make an assessment of the country roads in the morning.
Therefore, unfortunately, a decision is unlikely to be made as to whether the school will be open or not until early tomorrow morning.
As always student and staff safety is our priority.
In the meantime staff have put work on the VLE for students to complete today.
Regards
Mrs Swales
