We have had an unforeseen, major breakdown of our hot water boiler today and will need to get it replaced. As a result we have no hot water in school apart from the few locations where we have electronic heaters.
We have contacted the County Council for advice on the implications, who have informed us of measures we can take to keep the school open, short term.
From their advice we have provided all classes with insulated jugs of hot water to be replenished throughout the day as required for hygiene.
A plumber has been out to the school and confirms that we need a new boiler. This cannot be sourced until Friday at the earliest and therefore our actions as described above will apply until then.
The same conditions apply to the school caterer (Kingswood). Their manager will visit to review their risk assessment tomorrow. For the meantime school lunches will continue as normal.
If you have any concerns about sending your child to school during this time, please contact school to discuss. Further information will be sent out on Friday when we hope to have more information.
