Primary Schools in Oxfordshire

Here's a list of primary school closures in Oxfordshire due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

While all primary school closures in Oxfordshire have their own arrangements to contact parents and carers in case of closures, we will endeavour to keep the information on this page updated for the near future.

Secondary schools in Oxfordshire will have a staggered return, with those taking exams (Year 11 and 13) returning on January 11 and other year groups the week after.
