School Closures

Related Information

The table below provides details of school closures as reported to the Council during severe weather conditions or other circumstances affecting multiple schools across Reading. For details about individual school closures in other circumstances (eg. polling or staff training), please contact schools directly.

Please note: Although schools and academies are encouraged to report their status to the Council, they are not obliged to do so.  Most schools will routinely inform local radio stations of closures.  For up-to-date information, tune into BBC Radio Berkshire or visit the BBC Radio Berkshire website.  Otherwise please contact schools directly - click on a school name in the table below to visit its website.

In severe weather conditions, the decision about whether to close a school is made by the headteacher. Their decision is based on local conditions, and often depends on whether enough teachers have been able to get to the school to ensure pupil safety. Some might be able to open, others nearby might be forced to close.
