With snow already in Bury, and more on the way, it makes sense to have a plan of action in case last minute childcare 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 your child’s school have all up to date contact details in case mobile numbers, etc have changed.

We will update the list below, as and when, we hear of any closures.  Please also click through to the school website to check for updates.
