Message from Mrs Hayles

With great regret, we had to close the school yesterday because we completely lost our power. We have been struggling to heat the school in the last few days (as it gets colder) as a new boiler, which was replaced over the summer holiday, is not yet working. This is going to be repaired today (Wednesday 14th) and it should take 2 days to do the works. On Friday, the staff will be in school making sure everything is working ready for you all to come back after half term. 

I am so sorry. 

Your teachers, however, are ready to send all of your work over email. Please check your emails first thing each morning as there will be lots of things for you to do (in fact, exactly the same things you would have been doing if you were at school). 


If you have any questions, please email your child's teacher in the first instance, the office or if you desperately need to speak to someone, you can call the school mobile on 

07555 462429

Thanks for your understanding and for collecting your children so promptly yesterday.


God bless,

Kate Hayles
