Thousands of schools across the country were closed on Thursday as heavy snow and freezing temperatures brought the UK to a halt, but in Birmingham only one primary school and one nursery failed to open.
Almost every region was affected after another big dump of snow fell overnight making some roads impassable.
Some schools did brave the Arctic weather and opened their doors slightly later than normal while others were closed for the second day in a row.
In Birmingham, only Harborne Primary School was closed because of heating problems while the nursery and reception of Slade Primary School was also closed.
And 25 schools in Staffordshire were also closed while more than 70 were shut in Leicestershire.
The Department for Education has reassured headteachers that absences because of poor weather would not count against schools.
But it said headteachers who believe a child could have got to school but did not attend should record an unauthorised absence.
The number of schools forced to close in the UK because of the weather has more than doubled overnight, according to the Department for Education.
Around 7,000 schools across the UK were shut on Thursday compared with about 3,000 on Wednesday, the Government said.
The DfE said it hoped headteachers would use "common sense" when deciding whether it is safe to open.
