Current disruption

Emergency school closures as a result of bad weather

All schools have their own arrangements to contact parents and carers should there be a need to close the school at short notice, for example, in the event of severe weather. The decision to close a school is taken by the head teacher after considering a number of factors including the health and safety of staff and pupils, staff availability and road conditions near the school.

If a school is closed, this information should be available on the school’s website. We advise you to check with your child's school during periods of extreme weather to find out if it has been affected.

Following a small fire in one of the customer toilets, Beeston Library reopened on Tuesday, 7 February. You may browse and borrow as normal, use PCs and the cafe area. Upstairs is now also open, with access to one toilet and baby change available. Some events and activities may be affected - attendees will be notified directly. 

Industrial action affecting schools

Schools have been advised by the Department for Education to communicate decisions to parents and staff and give as much notice as possible in these circumstances.
