School closure advice
Types of school closure
There are two types of closure:
This would happen where there is no warning of a situation and the headteacher makes the decision that the school cannot open. Examples could include during or after an emergency incident such as a fire or flood, bad weather (snow) or the unexpected failure of an essential utility.
This would occur where the headteacher receives prior warning of a situation which they decide will have an effect on the school being able open. Examples could include where a utility company gives prior warning that a service will be unavailable or if the school is used as a polling station.
