School Closures


The website for logging school closures has changed.

Log a school closure: http://somersetschoolclosures.org.uk.

Both maintained schools and academies can access this site using any device. If you are using a SCC network device, you should be logged in automatically, but if you are using an external device, you will need to log in using your educ.somerset.gov.uk email address.  

​Whilst the decision to close a maintained school remain with the Head, in conjunction with the chair of governors, your school may have an identified Business Manager/administrator who is designated the task of uploading the closure. If this is the case, or if you as the Head, logs a closure please follow the following guidance.

In the first instance, we would like you to upload a closure for test purposes so that you are familiar with the new site and can check that the closure has been uploaded successfully. 

Guidance on how to upload a closure is located in Guidance for Schools, (found in the SCC H&S Extranet) via the following link: http://extranet.somerset.gov.uk/EasysiteWeb/getresource.axd?AssetID=139936&servicetype=Attachment.

Academy schools will be responsible for the decision making and upload of their own closures. Please contact the IT helpdesk if you require a login to access this site to be able to upload your closure.
