School closures

If any schools are closed due to bad weather, we'll put a list here. Schools make their own decisions about opening when we have heavy snow or severe ice.

If you do not see your school mentioned, assume it is open as normal.

For schools 

Schools are asked to report school closures to the council as soon as a decision has been made. Please inform the council that your school is closed by 7.30am on the day. Instructions on how to do this can be found on the schools' Extranet page (login required).

We will then update parents about your school closure on this webpage, on our Twitter account and our Facebook page. Sorry, but we can only accept reports of school closures through the instructions given on the Extranet page (login required).
