Look at:
Listen to:
  • BBC Radio Gloucestershire (104.7 FM or 95.0 FM)
  • Gold 774 (774 AM)
  • Heart FM (102.4 FM or 103.0 FM)
  • Gloucester FM (96.6 FM)
If we are still open:
  • Please drive safely, car share and park near the village hall or chapel to avoid congestion at the school
  • Walk to school if it is safe and practical to do so
  • Volunteer to clear snow from the playground
If we are closed:
  • Check for school work which will be set for each class and posted on this website
  • Volunteer to clear snow from the playground and school site to help get school open
  • Keep checking the school closure site and school website for regular updates
  • Stay safe and have fun

In the event of the school closing during the day we will aim to contact you directly.

Please check we have your correct emergency contact details including your e-mail address.
If the school is closed or you have any enquiries during snowy or severe weather conditions, please contact Mrs Pilkington by e-mail at: head@sheepscombe.gloucs.sch.uk
Alternatively leave a message on the school phone (01452 813852). All messages will be checked remotely throughout the day.
We will endeavour to keep the school open if at all possible but the safety of children, parents and staff will always be our priority.
