The decision to close the school is never taken lightly and it we will remain open as long as it is safe to do so. However, many of our school staff live quite a distance from Nether Heyford and lots of our pupils have to travel into the village from the surrounding area. Therefore, snowfall on untreated surfaces may prevent staff and/or children attending school and force a closure. If this is the case, the procedure for closing the school is as follows:
We will aim to have made a decision by 7:30 am if the school needs to be closed on that day.
Closure information will then be sent out via text message, email and Twitter - a notice will also be put on the school website.
Closure information will also be sent to the local radio stations for them to broadcast.
Please ensure the school has your latest mobile number and email address at all times.
