Check whether school is open on Monday

Staffordshire parents can check if their child’s school is closed on Monday due to the weather.

Go to the county council’s website www.staffordshire.gov.uk and searching for ‘school closure list’, or by clicking www.staffordshire.gov.uk/schoolclosure and following the instructions.

Philip White, Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet Support member for Learning and Employability, said:

It’s down to each head teacher to decide whether to open or close the school in bad weather and they consider a whole series of factors, including the state of local roads and paths, the availability of school and public transport and whether food, heating and lighting can be provided.

Schools should update the closure list once they’ve taken the decision so parents ought to check regularly.”
