Closing  a school or college is a complicated decision that affects students, staff and families. Our schools and colleges have a duty of care towards pupils and staff and must ensure they provide students with a safe and stable place to learn.
 
Individual schools will make decisions to close based on the:
  • safety and wellbeing of students and staff
  • number of teachers who are able to safely travel to school to determine if they have adequate number of teachers to take classes
  • severity of the weather which impacts on whether the school grounds are safe for students, teachers and visitors
All parents and carers are notified by text messaging or email and some schools will also promote closures via social media and local radio stations. Schools and colleges will try to give parents as much notice as possible regarding closures.
