Find out school term dates and emergency closures.

School closures

Has your child's school been affected by the weather? Maybe your child's school has been closed because of a power failure?

Teacher training days

During the academic year schools are granted the facility to close to pupils for up to five days for inservice training of teachers. Below you will find an up to date list on when schools plan to be closed during the academic year. The list will continue to be updated as information is received from schools. Schools will confirm closure dates to all parents and carers via their usual communication channels.
