Schools and nurseries are assessing the weather conditions as the county remains in the grip of sub-zero temperatures.

On Tuesday around 50 schools around Norfolk decided to close as snowfall and treacherous driving conditions made travel difficult for many rural locations.

And with the Beast from the East lingering in the region, schools will update this morning on whether another snow day will be announced.

Woodside One Neighbourhood Nursery has already declared it will close on Wednesday following a risk assessment of the weather conditions and a review of available staffing.

“We will do all we can to reopen as soon as possible,” they said. “Our aim is always to hold the safety of children, families and staff paramount – to keep our community safe.”

To check if your child’s school will be closed on Wednesday, visit the Norfolk County Council website.

For schools in Suffolk visit the Suffolk County Council website.

The status of individual schools is based on information supplied by the headteacher to the council websites. These websites do not provide the status of independent schools or privately run day care providers.

To see the latest version of the lists, the web page will need to be refreshed.
