HUNDREDS of schools across South Yorkshire are hit by industrial action today as teachers join other public sector workers in a strike row over pensions.
For a list of closed schools in the region see below.
Around 150 schools are expected to be shut and a further 150 will have some classes called off.
Along with civil servants and immigration staff, teachers are walking out over proposed changes to their pensions.
Up to 750,000 teachers and civil servants nationally are set to take part in today’s strike, saying that the government’s proposed changes to pensions will mean them working longer and paying more.
The 24-hour walkout involves members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT), the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), the University and College Union and the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union.

Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster councils are updating lists of school closures on their websites.
In Sheffield 26 schools were due to close with another 98 partially closing.
Around 53 schools are due to close in Barnsley with 14 partially closing.
In Rotherham 57 schools were expected to close with a further 42 partially closing.
Doncaster is expecting 56 schools to close with 20 partially closing.
Parents of Doncaster pupils at Ridgewood School, in Scawsby, stepped in to save the day after a strike by teachers threatened to disrupt pupils’ end-of-school prom.
Demos and picket lines are planned across the county including a rally at Barker’s Pool in Sheffield and picket lines at job centres in Maltby and Rotherham.
Doncaster council workers are also striking over potential job losses.
Unions claim the council want to axe a further 700 jobs, on top of 750 that have already gone, and cut community services like libraries.
The authority said it did not know how many staff were due to walk out but said services would continue.
