School closures detailed on county council website
Posted on Tuesday 31st January 2023
Parents can check if they local school is closed via Staffordshire County Council’s dedicated website.
As a series of National Education Union strikes begin tomorrow (Wednesday), schools who have notified the county council that they are closed can be viewed at www.staffordshire.gov.uk/schoolclosure.
Most schools will have already notified parents if they are closed due to the strikes, and have been told by the government to prioritise vulnerable children, children of key workers and those due to take public exams if they need to restrict attendance.
Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education Jonathan Price said:
“The decision to close rests with each individual school, where staff will take into account how many people are taking part in strike action and how many pupils they can accommodate.
“Every school will have their own method of contacting parents and will have already done so, but for an overview, our school closure website will contain details of all the schools who have notified us that they are closed today, and on the days of future strikes.”
