Almost 300 schools are closed today across Norfolk.
Mile Cross Primary School has been open all week, and even sent 280 of its pupils to the pantomime today.
Headteacher Stuart Allen said the school is showing a ‘can-do’ attitude to the pupils.
With so many of the pupils living close to the school on Brasier Road, he said it was the school’s duty to stay open.
“I am paid to do this job, and if I can get in to school, then I will open it.”
The children who have gone to the Norwich Theatre Royal to see Aladdin are being rewarded for their high attendance and good behaviour.
Eaton Primary School also chose to stay open, despite the snow.
Tom Leverage, chair of governors of the school on Duverlin Close, said that by staying open the school was helping both pupils and families to minimise the disruption the snow has caused.
He said: “We are delighted by the dedication the staff have shown in supporting our community and the careful and considerate way in which Mr Portas [the headteacher] has liaised with families over some difficult transport conditions.”
