School Closure Friday 2 March 2018

Dear Parents and Carers

I am writing to announce that Iqra Academy will be closed on Friday 2nd March 2018.

At the moment the roads north of Peterborough present an issue to a number of staff that travel using these roads.The forecast is that the weather locally is deteriorating. Every effort is being taken to ensure the school grounds are being re-gritted and cleared of ice and snow as I communicate this to you. However, there is a great deal of black ice that presents a health and safety risk. 
I hope you understand that these decisions are very difficult ones to make and we have done everything possible to try to keep the school open. As always, the safety and care of our students and staff is our first priority. We trust that, by having an early announcement, anyone with childcare and other issues to consider can make the necessary arrangements in good time.
Please remember that students can work independently at home.

In the meantime, I would like to thank you for your support and patience.

Best wishes,
