A number of schools across the north and north-east have been forced to remain fully or partially closed this week following bad weather.

The Met Office issued yellow weather warnings throughout the week, with one still in force across the Highlands until noon today.

Wintry weather has meant that some schools were left with no heating or power, meaning they could not open to staff and pupils on Thursday.

Some schools have also had to partially close due to staff absences, meanwhile others have announced travel changes.

Here’s the full list of schools affected on Friday:
