Process for reporting temporary school closures

Emergency school closures

  • Login to My account area to report a temporary school closure.

  • *Please don’t amend this main school email address to an individual’s email address.
  • If you need additional users to have access please complete the Request extra user account form and extra log-ins will be set up for you.
  • If your school is part of a group, for example, a Federation or MAT, we can arrange for a user account to be set up with the functionality to report multiple school closures – if this would be helpful please email a specific request to
