Schools may be closed in bad weather, or in the event of other emergencies such as loss of heating. See which schools are closed today or have planned school closures.

Headteachers work hard to keep schools open wherever possible, but circumstances may mean that they have to make a decision to close the school, or amend school start and/or finish times.

Where to get school closure information

If school closures are happening, you may be notified by text message by your child's school, or through a "parent portal" app.

You can also check your child's school's website or social media. See contact details and website information for schools in York in our schools directory.

We provide a full list of closures; see our Twitter feed or see which schools are closed today.
