Schools will remain open for vulnerable children and the children of key workers.
Each school has their own procedures for notifying parents of a school closure, including the use of a text messaging service that will notify parents if a school will be closing. Details of emergency school closures and openings will also be aired on local radio stations. Schools have also been given access to update this page with any closure details.
Please note, the decision to close a school unexpectedly is made by the school. In all cases schools will seek to avoid a closure unless they are absolutely necessary.
