If your child attends an academy, please check the academy's website for details of any closures.
How we are notified of a school closure
It is the responsibility of the Headteacher and Chair of Governors to decide whether to close a school. The school will then let the County Council and the local radio station know it will be closed. The school will also update its own website, if possible.
Please note that:
- we request schools notify us when they are closed but if your child’s school isn’t listed please check directly with the school
- as soon as we are informed of a school closure, we add the information to the website, but during emergencies this is not usually until the day the school closes
- this information may not say when a school will reopen unless the school has provided this information.
