Emergency Closure Information


We endeavour to stay open in all circumstances, but there will be rare occasions on which we are forced to close the school for some or all of our students, for example in cases of extreme winter weather. If this should be necessary, we will use all means possible to inform students and parents as soon as we can. These will include:

  • The school website
  • Derbyshire¬† County Council website www.derbyshire.gov.uk/schoolclosures
  • Local Radio
  • Text messages to parents. Please note that this is by far the most effective method of communicating urgent information. We would be very grateful if parents could ensure that we are kept informed of any change of mobile number or any other contact information.

If you require any further information on emergency closure please e-mail info@oiea.co.uk.
