Just five Norfolk schools closed today despite wintry weather

Many of the thousands of pupils who enjoyed a day off yesterday as a result of the weekend snowfall will be heading back to school today.

The wintry weather and low temperatures which led to more than 30 Norfolk schools, mostly in the west of the county, being closed yesterday has claimed just five victims today.

Those schools shut today are:

•Litcham Primary School - Heating failure.

•Norwich Road School, Thetford - School grounds still unsafe. Staff will be clearing the site to try and re-open for tomorrow.

•Sidestrand Hall School - Major electrical fault requiring electricity board replacement.

•St. Clement's High School, Terrington St Clement, - School will be closed to students today due to continuing problems with kitchen facilities. School will be open to all staff but there is no catering available.
