I’m trying to find out the status of local schools tomorrow, Monday 21st January 2013. It should be noted that this may not be comprehensive, accurate or useful. I’m doing my best with very limited information. I’m doing it in good faith.
Theoretically, there’s a list of all schools closed in Walsall on Walsall Council’s website here, [This has now been updated but doesn’t seem complete – Bob, 8:15am Monday] although Serco, the body charged with running education in Walsall, hasn’t bothered to update it since Friday at the current time of publication (9:20pm, Sunday 20th January). Word is, they won’t update it until 8:30am, which has to be a mistake…
Free Radio are also running an extensive roster of closed schools.
Walsall Advertiser have a page up for schools in Walsall Borough.
I’m trying to form a useful list for readers. Please add what you can in the comments below.
