School closures in Oxfordshire due to COVID-19

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

Local cases and outbreaks of COVID-19 may result in staff and/or pupils needing to self-isolate. This may result in the school restricting on-site attendance temporarily for individual classes or bubbles or temporarily moving pupils back to remote learning.

All Oxfordshire schools have arrangements to contact parents and carers in case of closures - including the use of parent mailing systems, text, social media, and the school website.

Any school we are aware of currently affected by partial or complete temporary closure is listed below. We will endeavour to keep the information on this page updated to reflect Oxfordshire school closure information we receive from the County Council and individual schools.
