Dear Parents/Carers and Students

May I first thank everyone in our school community for their support this morning in what was a difficult situation for all concerned. I am grateful to all our parents for putting up with the disruption caused to their day and would also like to thank our students for the sensible and helpful way they worked with the staff this morning.

I am delighted to be able to report that the break in the water supply pipe has been located and has been mended in the last few minutes. The site team are now getting everything back together ready for us to open as usual tomorrow.

I would like to publicly thank the bus companies and drivers who came to pick our students up this morning and take them home safely. Thanks also go to our brilliant site team and our contractors, Robinsons along with Skeltons, who have waded through the mud and water to get our water supply back on.

I look forward to seeing all our students in school tomorrow.
