The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

In the event of adverse weather conditions, the school website will be updated on a daily basis. Parents and carers are also asked to check announcements on Heart FM and BBC Radio Kent and the Kent Closures Website at:  where you can also sign up for alerts and via SMS (charges apply).

The Kent Closures Website 

The Kent Closures website will display the change the ‘status’ of the school to ‘open’, ‘closed’ or ‘partially closed’. The information will then be displayed on the website for parents and staff. In addition, when the status of a school is changed the information is shared with Kent radio stations so the closures can be broadcast.
