Further action by school in event of closure decision

It is a statutory requirement to inform the local authority, if you decide to close your school, e.g. due to severe weather conditions.

Report any school closures to schools incidents desk:
Mobile: 07940 546 263
Email: dunhams@ealing.gov.uk

And confirm:

  • Your school's name
  • Name of person leaving message
  • Contact telephone number
  • Reason for school's closure
  • Expected date/time to re-open.

This information is required in order that the local authority is aware and can respond to queries on this matter with parents, the media and local services and staff.

Closure information may also be published on the Ealing Council website.

In addition to notifying the local authority as described above it is important, if appropriate, to notify transport providers and school meal providers as soon as possible.

The local authority will update advice or information on this website as necessary.
