In an emergency, schools and early years centres may have to close suddenly. The most common reason for this is because of bad weather, such as snow.
If a school is forced to close we will update this page as soon as we are able. If you think that a school may be closed and cannot find it here, there are other ways to get the information you need:
- visit your school's website
- or visit our Twitter account, LearningInSoton, or our Southampton Parents page on Facebook (both linked on the left).
All schools will open if they can but they may find this impossible. If schools do open in the morning, they are sometimes forced to close half-way through the day if the weather gets worse. This is to make sure that pupils and staff can get home safely.
Frequently asked questions about school closures are listed below.
