A primary school has been forced to close as it has no heating or hot water amid freezing weather.

Glory Farm Primary School gave notice of an emergency closure today (Monday, February 6) on Oxfordshire County Council's website.

And on its Facebook page the school in Sunderland Drive thanked parents and carers on Facebook "for your support this morning with the late closure of school".

The school leadership team wrote: "We were desperately trying to keep the school open for the children, however, it became apparent at 8.30am that the problem with the boiler was more complex than first thought.

"We really do apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will update you in due course about school being open tomorrow. Many thanks again."

They also posted links to home learning for each year group.
