Emergency school closures

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

Industrial action - 1 February

The National Education Union (NEU) has voted to take industrial action nationally on 1 February. Schools have been advised to take all reasonable steps to stay open for as many pupils as possible. Schools may have to restrict attendance in some year groups, but the advice is to prioritise vulnerable children, children of critical workers and children preparing for exams. 

This page will not provide advance warning of either partial or full school closures due to strike action. Wait for advice from your child’s school about their plans.

There are further proposed strike days in March. 

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 FM (102.6 or 97.4 FM)
  • JACK 2(107.9 FM and DAB)
  • Banbury FM (online @ and smart speaker) 01295 297888 / news@banburyfm.com
  • Jack FM (106.8 FM, 106.4 FM and DAB)
  • Witney Radio (99.9FM).

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

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