Emergency school closures

A list of schools that have had to close suddenly because of bad weather or other reasons.

All schools have their own arrangements to contact parents and carers should there be a need to close the school at short notice, for example in the event of severe weather. This may include the use of bespoke parent mailing systems, text, social media etc as well as use of the school website.

We also encourage schools to notify local radio stations. School closures are announced during the breakfast shows on:

  • BBC Radio Oxford (95.2 FM)
  • Heart FM (102.6 or 97.4 FM)
  • JACK 2(107.9 FM and DAB)
  • Banbury Sound (107.6 FM)
  • Jack FM (106.8 FM, 106.4 FM and DAB)
  • Witney Radio (99.9FM).

We rely on schools informing us of when they are closed. The information below is a list of closed schools that the we are currently aware of. In the event of a large number of schools being closed due to adverse weather this information may take some time to be fully updated.

If your school is not listed below, we strongly recommend that you contact your school directly to establish if the school is closed. If a school is closed this information should usually be available on the school’s website.
