Dear Parents / Carers,

School will be closed on Monday 14th September as a precautionary measure while work is carried out to test the building’s air quality.

This was not a planned exercise, but has been deemed necessary in light of the discovery of an unidentified odour in parts of the school.

Initial tests have ruled out a gas leak, but until we can locate the origin of the odour and confirm its cause, we need to ensure the wellbeing of your children and school staff.

This decision has not been made lightly, but has been taken in consultation with Governors, senior staff and the professionals who attended school on Friday afternoon.

We are hoping to have a resolution to the odour issue by the end of Monday, when a decision will be made as to whether school will re-open on Tuesday.

We will send a message via text as soon as we are able.

The Year Six trip to Low Bank Ground will go ahead as planned. Please make your way to the hall door as arranged and we will meet you there.

We understand that this situation will cause inconvenience and for that we apologise. However, the health and safety of your children and staff will always be paramount.
