A quick guide to school closures
- Parents and carers should be informed by schools about any closures, including those caused by snow. If you've not done so already, we would encourage you to sign up for text alerts, which are offered by most schools, and to make sure that the school has your latest mobile phone number.
- We also encourage parents to keep up-to-date with any closure details by checking your school's website, listening to local radio or following your school onTwitter, if available.
- The decision to close a school is taken by each head teacher rather than the council. Heads have to weigh up a number of factors including the local weather conditions, pupil safety and the staff numbers before making a decision - please see this article about school snow closures for more information.
- Schools are not obliged to alert the council to closures but a list should also be available on the BBC Leicester website and other local radio websites.
