It took most of us by surprise but we now know that a General Election has been called and will be held on Thursday 8 June 2017.  If your school has been designated as a polling station, you will need to understand the implications for your school including considering closing the school, or parts of it, and ensuring that parents have been notified accordingly. Our advice sets out what needs to be done and how this can be best accomplished in the interests of staff, pupils and parents.
