Our schools are now closed for the foreseeable future to all pupils except those children who are identified as vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. Our central team office and our schools are still operational behind the scenes, but as staffing numbers are significantly reduced, please be patient if you contact us for help or support.

School Closure

This morning the decision had to be made to close Oldmixon Primary School. This was due to a burst water main external to the school, but meant that the school was left without water and therefore unable to function for children and staff.

Through the use of text messages, the website and Twitter, 85% of children were picked up within 30 minutes with the rest of the children kept safe in school with staff until they could be collected.

Interim Executive Head, Heidi Hudd and Interim Head of School, Laina Pettifor would like to thank all children, parents, carers and staff for their prompt and effective action in response to this situation.


It highlighted how well the staff handled the emergency evacuation plan. The school aims to be open for the last day of term but this cannot be guaranteed this at this stage until the water company are able to make their repairs and confirm that the school is able to open.
