The Ridgeway C.E. Primary School

Unforeseen School Closures

As a school we will always make every effort to keep school open. We fully appreciate the impact that a closure can have on busy, hard working parents.

However, on the rare occasion that we experience unforeseen events (such as extreme weather conditions), if conditions on site pose significant health and safety issues, or if we simply cannot be assured of having the necessary numbers of staff on site to ensure the well-being of pupils we will reluctantly, take the decision to close. If we are forced to close, or partially close, we will use every means to communicate this to our Parents/Carers as quickly as we can.

The school will notify Parents by text and/or email of any disruption to the school day as soon as possible. It will also be listed on the Oxfordshire County Council website. Please ensure that all contact details are updated via the School Office to. 

Please do follow any additional instructions which may appear on site, in the event of partial closure e.g. sticking to paths which have been gritted.
