How to notify us of a school closure

information and training for schools and childcare providers

There are a number of disruptions to Council services because of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please use the link below before accessing any of our services.

For details of disruptions and for advice and guidance visit

If a school decides that it will close because of an emergency situation or other disruption due to strike action or adverse weather, the school closures e-form should be used to notify Stockton Council.

                 Tell us about a school closure in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees                

Once the form is submitted it is automatically sent to key Council services that need to know about the closure for example:

  • Corporate Communications team - who will liaise with local media about school closures
  • School meals
  • School transport
  • Education team

We can only accept notification of school closures from a school that submits the form along with the current password which has been supplied to Headteachers of Stockton Borough schools and colleges.

If you are unsure as to what the password is, please contact Mel Manley – [email protected], 01642 526385.

For those looking for information on school closures, please visit our School Closures page, we also update our social media channels as soon as information is received.
