A decision to close the school in an emergency situation, such as in the case of severe adverse weather conditions, will only be made by the Head of School if it is absolutely necessary to do so.

School closures will be communicated prior to the start of the school day as soon as possible in the following ways:

School website:

On the home page (under the latest News section)

KCC Kent Closures:


Enter 'Inspire Academy' into the search box for live updates of the school's open/closed status.

Local Radio Stations:

Tune into Heart FM or KMFM (also visit www.kmfm.co.uk/school-closures as they update their website with local school closures around Kent and Medway)
