Emergency school closures

Schools closed for severe weather and emergencies

When schools and nurseries are closed due to an emergency, we will publish a list of those closed here. If a school is not mentioned on the list of closures it is open as usual.

If a school has a nursery attached, please assume that if the school is closed the nursery is also closed, unless we state otherwise.

We send text messages to parents to alert them to school closures. Please make sure that your school has your phone number. 

Other ways to find out about closures
