Extreme Weather and School Closures

If we experience extreme weather this winter there is the possibility that the school may have to close. Any decision to close is based on a number of factors but is primarily based on Health and Safety requirements, the provision of essential services, the local 24 hour weather forecast and advice from Motoring organisations and the Police.

If we are forced to close, the decision will be made by 7am and the information will then be available on:

  • Radio Oxford and Heart FM who make regular announcements about closures;
  • BBC Radio Oxford – VHF/FM 95.2
  • HEART (Thames Valley) – VHF/FM 102.6/97.4
  • JACK FM – VHF/FM 106.8

The Oxfordshire County Council website ( www.oxfordshire.gov.uk ) lists all school closures. It is our aim, whenever possible, to keep the school open.

We will also update the school website ( www.millbrookschool.org.uk ) and send a ParentMail email and text to parents as early as possible.
