Adverse weather

The Streets Ahead winter service

The Council's Streets Ahead team will closely monitor the weather forecasting systems across the city so they can be ready if wintry weather arrives.  Their fleet of 19 gritters are ready to respond to whatever the weather might bring.

For regular updates about the gritting service please follow them on Twitter -  @sccstreetsahead

In order to help people be prepared for the worst weather, they have provided some hints and tips on how you can be ready and prepare your vehicles. Just visit: www.sheffield.gov.uk/winter.

Schools opening during adverse weather

Sheffield schools always do their utmost to stay open, but sometimes changes to opening times may need to occur due to adverse weather.

If bad weather does occur and you’re not sure whether your child’s school is opening as usual, you should hear first from your child’s school via their usual communications method (text, email or school website).

Unless you hear otherwise, you should assume it is open as usual.

You can also find further information at www.sheffield.gov.uk/schoolclosures where you can sign for email alerts to notify you of any school opening changes.  You can also search for #sheffschools or follow @sheffcouncil on Twitter for up to date information.
