Nursery, primary and secondary schools in Welwyn Garden City, Potters Bar, Hatfield and surrounding villages closed today (January 21) because of the heavy snow over the weekend and treacherous conditions.

However, most will open as normal on Tuesday, January 22, although some schools will have later registration times to allow staff and pupils to travel to school safely.

Among the schools open on Tuesday are:

* All Saints C E Primary, in Datchworth, will open at 9am with registers closing at 10am. Roads near the school have not been gritted, so parents are warned to drive carefully and only travel if safe to do so.
