Emergency school closures

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

Schools have contact arrangements for when they need to close the school at short notice. Contacts may include bespoke parent mailing systems, text, social media, and the school website.

We encourage schools to notify local radio stations. The following breakfast shows announce school closures.

  • BBC Radio Oxford (95.2 FM)
  • Heart Oxfordshire (102.6 or 97.4 FM)
  • Hits Radio Oxfordshire (107.9 FM)
  • Banbury FM (online and through a smart speaker)
  • Witney Radio (99.9 FM)

We rely on schools telling us they are closed. The list below shows schools we know are closed. If many schools are closed due to adverse weather, updating the list may take longer.

If your school is not listed, we recommend that you contact your school. Schools usually show closures on their website.
