Schools and severe weather

Severe weather can affect local schools in many different ways.

It can force a school to close because:

  • heavy snowfall may prevent teachers and staff from travelling to work, which is especially likely if they don’t live near the school
  • heating systems can fail
  • burst water pipes can flood classrooms

To help keep parents, guardians and pupils informed about any school closures, we have set up a school closures webpage. Headteachers can update this directly and from remote locations.

You can also listen out for updates on BridgeFM and other local radio stations and check school closure information on BBC Wales online.
