DETAILS of school closures are expected to be revealed tomorrow evening (Sun) or Monday morning.

The weather caused havoc for all schools across North Somerset towards the end of the week with most closing.

Headteachers now plan to announce early tomorrow evening or Monday morning if they are to open.

Worle Community School has already confirmed it will only be open to staff and year 11 pupils on Monday.

Headteacher of Priory Community School Neville Coles said: "These are exceptional circumstances. I cannot ever, in 21 years of teaching, remember closing for more than one day, let alone three.

"We hope to open Monday and will post new information on the website tomorrow night, but it may be Monday morning at 7am, as I understand poor weather is due overnight on Sunday."

For updates and information on which schools will be opening keep an eye on this website.
