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.

School closures Friday 18 February 2022

We've been notified of one school closure today - Wednesbury Oak Academy in Tipton, where they are closed due to the forecast as they have roofing work going on.

All other schools are open as usual unless your child’s school contacts you to say otherwise.

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).
