School closures

The decision to close a school is taken by the head teacher. They may choose not to report the closure or changed arrangement to us. Schools requiring further advice or wishing to add their name to the list of closures should follow the School Emergency Closure Procedures (log in required).

Schools will usually inform parents directly if they have had to close or change arrangements due to severe weather.

We advise you to contact your child's school during periods of extreme weather to find out if it has been affected.

Local radio station will also have updates on school closures.
