School - closures
Sometimes it is necessary for schools to close because of bad weather, loss of utility services (such as electric, gas or water) or other emergencies.
Headteachers work hard to keep their schools open wherever possible but if circumstances mean that they have to make a decision to close the school or send children home early, there are various ways of contacting parents.
How we tell you if a school is closed?
Local radio stations play an important part in communications between schools and parents. Once headteachers have made the decision to close their school they will inform the local radio station covering the area in which the school is located and ask them to broadcast a message to parents.
The local radio stations used to broadcast school closure information for North Yorkshire include:
The following radio stations broadcast information for specific parts of the county:
Schools will also have local arrangements in place to make sure that parents and carers are informed as soon as possible. If you are unsure of the procedure at your child's school please discuss this with the headteacher.
We will also endeavour to have a list of closures notified to us displayed on this page by 9am on the day concerned.
