OpenCheck for Parents

OpenCheck allows you to check the status of your children's school on any given day. This easy-to-use service presents information regarding school closures in case of emergency, severe weather or any news which may affect children's ability to attend or access the school. It also allows you to check scheduled school closures and term dates.


The service is free to use to both schools and parents, and can be accessed via the web or by telephone.


Just use the drop down lists to select your child's school and see its status.

You can select multiple schools.
