We always strive to keep the school open for pupils but there are always cases where something unexpected happens and there may be occasions where we need to close the school.
In case of an emergency closure parents will be informed via the app Parent Hub and will be texted as early as possible. For this reason it is vital that you always make sure we have your most up to date contact details.
Radio Leeds will also be contacted to inform parents of a closure, we will also put a message on our website, the Kirklees schools website, our Twitter account [@BirstallAcad] and where possible a notice on the school gates.
