Schools in Burnley and Pendle are once again being forced to close due to snow and ice.

Lancashire County Council have confirmed the following schools are shut due to the adverse weather conditions:

St James’ Lanehead Church of England Primary School

Reedley Primary School (the school is closed for the morning session and a decision is set to be made on whether it will open this afternoon)

Sir John Thursby Community College will also be closing.

On the college website it states: “Please note that due to weather related technical issues college will be closed today. For updates please continue to check the website.”

A text message has been sent to parents of Colne’s Newtown Nursery School pupils confirming the West Street site will not open this morning.

And Ridgewood Community High School, in Burnley, will close its doors at 12-30pm, due to the weather and “the added complication of no phone lines”.
