SCHOOL WILL BE OPEN AS NORMAL ON TUESDAY 6TH FEBRUARY.
Thank you for your understanding while emergency repairs were carried out to our heating system.
EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSURE - MONDAY 5th FEBRUARY 2018
Unfortunately, there is another major leak under the floor in one of the school corridors which means that our heating system is still not working in any part of the school. Although we hired some heaters (on Thursday) for each class, as you know, these ended up overloading the electric system. I am therefore left with no choice but to close the school again on Monday, as it is too cold in the classrooms (well below the temperature required by the DfE).
Extensive repairs have been taking place over the weekend, although the first repair was successful, unfortunately, once the heating system was refilled another pipe burst further down the corridor. This now needs to be repaired and will involve digging up more of the floor in the corridor around the dining hall. This means that, as well as not be able to turn on the heating, this key area of school would not be accessible or safe for the children.
We expect to be open as normal on Tuesday 6th February. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Ms Gail Neill, Head Teacher
