Emergency Closure

In extreme weather conditions we endeavour to advise families of the decision to close the school as soon as possible and, in this respect, closures will be announced on local radio stations (Radio Berkshire, Radio Oxford, Heart FM and Jack FM). Parents are asked to listen in to these stations from 7.00am onwards in the event of severe weather to receive confirmation of any closure. Additionally, advice will be posted on the Twitter feed on the school’s website and updated regularly.

As soon as a decision to close has been made, a text message will be sent to all parents who have registered a mobile number with the school. If you have not yet signed up to School Gateway, please visit www.schoolgateway.com to activate your account or download the free School Gateway app from the iPhone or Android app store.

A decision to close the school is not taken lightly and the safety of both pupils and staff during their journeys to and from school will be taken into account when making such a decision. We will also be guided by the bus companies who provide school transport services for our pupils.
