Statement from the Headteacher

Dear Parents/Carers

We recently advised parents/carers via the website and direct email that we are without hot water and heating in some areas of the school.

When school reopened in September the two main school heating boilers were condemned due to age and wear and tear. The school immediately applied for an emergency grant to cover the costs of the repairs. However, despite the intervention and fantastic support of our local MP, Ian Austin, unfortunately the grant was not approved by the Department for Education (DfE) until Wednesday 18th October 2017.

As you would expect, we take the education and welfare of our students very seriously and hence, we will endeavour to keep the school open if at all possible during this time. Currently the situation is monitored every day and at present there is no need to close the school. Should we have a particularly cold spell before the heating is restored, then the following options are being considered:-

  • Starting school later in the morning
  • Closing the school for specific year groups

Work to replace the boilers is due to commence on Friday 3rd November and we are hoping to have temporary heating and hot water installed as soon as possible. Works are expected to last approximately 14 weeks, however to clarify, we will have temporary heating and hot water in school during this period.

We will advise parents/carers when the temporary system is up and running, however in the meantime students are advised to wear an additional layer of clothing under their school uniform if required.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.

Kind regards

Yours sincerely


Mr A F Jasper
Headteacher
