Headteachers and governors appreciate the difficulty and inconvenience caused to families when schools close unexpectedly and will do everything they can to avoid closing at short notice.
You can keep up-to-date with any closure details by signing up to your school's text and or email alerts and follow them on social media, if available. Some schools will also inform BBC Radio Leicester of closure, who will broadcast regular updates.
