Due to industrial action by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) on Tuesday 5 July schools in Kent could be forced to close or partially close.
Parents should check with their child’s school to see what impact the action is likely to have and whether the school will be closed or partially closed to some classes.
Headteachers and governing bodies of schools will make decisions about whether to close a school for the day, this is based on whether they have appropriate staffing arrangements in place to ensure the safety of pupils.
In some cases a decision to close a school may be made at very short notice.
Schools that have notified the county council they will be closed or partially closed are listed below. Parents are also advised to check individual school websites.
Therefore the accuracy of this information is dependent on individual schools notifying Kent County Council.
This list does not include academies or free schools.
