Chawson First School will be closed to five classes, Westacre Middle School closed to all classes in year six and year seven and some classes in year five.
Other schools with partial closures will be St Peter’s First School and Wychbold First and Nursery School.
Schools hit by full closures will be Tibberton First, Witton Middle and Hindlip First.
