Building Work Update
The contractors have started on site today as planned. It will take a few days to get the hoardings up. Some temporary fencing should be in place by tomorrow morning. We have talked to all the children about the building work and how to keep safe on the site whilst the work is going on.
Early Morning Fire Drill
Thank you to everyone who responded so sensibly this morning when the fire alarm went off just before the start of the school day. We were very impressed with how quickly and calmly we assembled staff and children.
We would like to reassure you that our fire drill was due to a heat sensor being triggered in the school kitchen. It did however demonstrate to us that we have clear procedures in place.
You may have heard on the news about many schools across the country being evacuated today due to a malicious communication e-mailed to school offices. We understand that you will be concerned about hearing anything of this nature. Please be assured that any information received by the school was responded to in line with Local Authority and Police advice.
We will be putting more information on the school website about how we respond to critical incidents. It is difficult to cover for all eventualities but this morning’s fire drill showed us how responding calmly and waiting for instructions makes potentially difficult situations easier to manage and ensures that we can keep everyone safe.
