School Closure Information
The local authority will take the responsibility of informing parents when an “All Schools Closure” has been decided. However there may be occasions when it a localised issue. On these occasions the decision rests with the Headteacher and Chair of Governors. Provided health and safety is not compromised (pathways, heating, staff/pupil ratio) we will be open! It is a parental decision as to whether it is safe to travel to and from school.
Please ensure that you have updated the office with any changes to your contact details – as on occasions parents have been requested to collect pupils from school during extreme
weather conditions. If we have to close the best source of information is our own frequently updated Class Dojo service and also the school website which is as follows: www.oakhill.worcs.sch.uk.
The County Council Website www.worcestershire.gov.uk will also display the list of schools that are closed or partially closed. Telephone number 01905 765765 – lines may be busy!)
