Schools make their own decisions about opening when we have heavy snow or severe ice.

Any schools that are closed for any reason will contact parents and carers directly. Look out for a text, email or social media update, or check the school website.

School closures due to strike action

If your child’s school is closed due to strike action, schools will let parents and carers know directly.

For schools 

Schools are asked to let the council's school organisation unit know if they are closed for any reason. Instructions on how to do this can be found on the schools' Extranet page (login required).

Information about school closures will no longer be shared on council social media channels - so please inform parents through your usual channels if your school is closed.
