School closures and front line worker information
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.
