If your child’s school isn’t listed, it might be worth checking with them just in case.

With snow already in Bury, and more on the way, it makes sense to have a plan of action in case last minute child care is needed.

It obviously helps to know as early as possible if your child’s school is closed for the day, and most schools in Bury are quite well organised, especially when bad weather has been expected.  They will either leave a recorded message on their answering machine, leave a message on their website or send out a text message.  It might also help to check if the school has a facebook page that you can follow to receive immediate updates.  Please make sure school have all up to date contact details in case mobile numbers, etc have changed.

Tower FM have lists of all schools in the area that are frequently updated with any school closures on their website here.  Luckily, most schools in Bury still managed to open today, with only one school, Peel Brow in Ramsbottom closing.

We will keep you informed as best we can of any closures on our facebook page Family Life Bury. If you have news about a local school that you would like us to share, please email us at
