Some schools across Suffolk are planning to reopen their doors after more than 200 closed due to the hazardous conditions caused by Storm Darcy.

Further snow showers are expected in the coming days, with temperatures forecast to remain low throughout the week meaning that some schools will have to remain closed due to a lack of heating and concerns over treacherous conditions for staff and pupils travelling to school.

The cold snap forced more than 200 schools in Suffolk to close earlier this week. While most children are learning at home, children of key workers and vulnerable children had still been attending but were forced to stay home.

Schools already confirmed to be closing on Wednesday are:

  • Easton Primary School
  • Aldeburgh Primary School
  • Trimley St Martin Primary School
  • Wickham Market Primary School
  • Wenhaston Primary School
  • Gorseland Primary School
  • Whatfield CEVCP School
  • Bucklesham Primary School
  • Kersey CEVCP School
  • Thomas Wolsey Ormiston Academy
  • Thurston Community College
