The family of Ann Maguire has asked media to clarify the arrangements for her funeral on Friday.
A Requiem Mass for Mrs Maguire, who died at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Halton on April 28, will be held at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Moortown, Leeds, at noon.
The funeral had been described as a private service for family and close friends in the interests of avoiding an unexpectedly large number of people attending and potentially impacting on the event.
Police said this had been misinterpreted as the public being asked to stay away, which is not the case. The funeral will be open to the public.
