Schools and education

Schools closed today

When we're notified of school closures, we'll update the details on this page. You can also follow School Services on Twitter for updates.

Current school closures

Primary schools can now open to larger numbers of vulnerable children and children of critical workers. They can also welcome back pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, but provision will vary across the city depending on how many children schools can accommodate once social distancing guidelines have been put in place, and the number of staff who are available to work in schools is clear. Not all schools will be open for all eligible pupils immediately.

Your child’s school will keep you updated on its plans. If you have any queries please contact your child’s school.

Schools notify us of when they are completely closed for any reason and we will continue to post that information here.
