Closed schools

All Dorset County Council schools are listed as either open, partially open or closed below. The list is updated when a head teacher changes the status of their school.

You can also listen to local radio stations for information about closed schools in your area or click on any of the schools in blue to go to their own websites.

All schools will automatically revert to open on the list at 4pm each school day. After 4pm, the schools' status refers to the following day. Parents should check the page in the morning. Refresh your browser regularly to see the most up-to-date list.

School strikes - 10th July

Dorset County Council is encouraging schools to stay open, where possible, during the planned industrial action on 10 July.

However, the final decision as to whether a school remains open, closed or partially closed lies with its headteacher and the chair of governors.

It is a school's responsibility to let parents know if any kind of closure is planned. Some schools may choose to say whether they are closed on this page. However, this information will not be available until after 4pm on Wednesday (9 July), the day before the strike, and it will not be a comprehensive list of all closures. If you are in any doubt, please contact your child's school direct.

You can check the RSS feed to receive updates whenever a school's status is changed. What is an RSS feed?
