Each school's headteacher and chair of governors decide whether to close the school in bad weather conditions (for example, heavy snow).

  • Contact your school direct to see if they're open on a day of severe weather. Find your school's contact details.
  • Listen to your local radio station. Often they announce local school closures throughout the morning.
