My apologies that I had to take the decision to close school today, Friday 6th March, due to a gas fault that meant no cooking facilities and no hot water is available in the building. I was only informed that the fault could not be repaired at 8.20am hence the late decision to close. Thank you for all your support in collecting your children or agreeing for them to be returned on transport.
The fault has been identified and unfortunately it requires a part that is not available until Monday 9th March - we are hopeful that we can get the part and the scaffolding that is needed to fit the part in place for Monday so that it will be repaired by the end of the day on Monday.
This does mean that school will be closed to pupils on Monday 9th March. Merstone Pebbles will be open as usual as will Forest Oak 6th form.
Please check the website on Monday late afternoon to see if the problem has been resolved and if school is open on Tuesday 10th March.
If you have annual review meeting scheduled for Monday please still attend with your child as staff will be here to carry out the meetings.
Once again my apologies for the inconvenience this will have caused you.
