Occasionally schools have to close as a result of bad weather or unavoidable emergencies such as loss of utility services. A message about school closures will appear on this website.

In setting school term dates and holidays, Torfaen consults with its neighbouring authorities in order to achieve a consistent approach across the South East Wales area. Any proposed dates are also the subject of consultation with the various teaching unions.
