A decision to close the school will always be based on the grounds of Health & Safety for all pupils and staff. If for any reason school has to close we will notify Parents by text message. The same procedure will also apply if the heating has broken down or another emergency affects staffing or the premises. A message will also be recorded on our telephone answer message and we will put a notification on the website. This will be done as soon as possible once a decision has been made to close. Please avoid calling the school direct as it is unlikely there will be any staff manning the telephones. You can also check the County Council website (www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/schoolclosures) where there will be a list of school closures.
