See our COVID-19 information page about schools
School and childcare setting closures happen because of an emergency like severe weather.
The decision to close a school is made by the headteacher and/or governing body or the setting manager, and may be at short notice.
It's the school's responsibility to let parents and carers know about any closures.
We publish the information on this page, based on information provided by schools and settings.
We advise you to check with your child's school or setting if you're not sure they're open - you can find a link to their website on this page.
