Notification of School Closure

This information is for staff members of schools in Lincolnshire and Newark, who wish to get their schools featured on our School Closures list for times of bad weather that affect the Lincs FM region. 

Contacting Us:
Please call us as soon as you're aware of your school closure, or fill in the form below.  Please make sure, when contacting us, you have the required DFE number and Password, sent by email to each school.

Please call 01522 549900 to report the closure. Out of hours this number will have an answerphone, offering an alternate number. We do not accept school closures via social media. 

Ideally, if calling on the morning of the closure, then please contact us at least 10 minutes before the on air announcement time (listed below) otherwise your school could miss that announcement. Your school will still feature in our list online at and on the list available on our Mobile Phone App.

Please note we will only accept school closure information from official members of staff at the school and callers will be asked the usual security questions to prove their identity.

We will be announcing school closures straight after the News Bulletins at 7am, 7.30am and 8am. If, however, the list of closures exceeds 50 schools then we will only make one announcement at 7.30am - though the full list will be included online at or via our Mobile Phone App

Please note we will only ever announce school CLOSURES. We will not mention, on air, schools that are open or re-opening.

The online list  - also available on our Mobile Phone App - will be updated as and when new information is received.
