Unavoidable school closures guidance for schools

Circumstances may arise when it may be necessary to temporarily close or partly close a school.  You can view a list of schools that we know to be closed today and the news of closures may be broadcast by your local radio station.

The unavoidable school closures guidance (PDF 2 MB) is to assist headteachers in identifying such situations and in taking follow up action. 

Following a decision to close, the form NUC/1 should be completed as a follow up action.  This can be via the Schools’ Portal (if you have appropriate access) or you can download the form to return by email or in hard format:
