I am writing to you with regards to the heating system at the school. The system was repaired over Christmas but has broken down again over the weekend. This means that the temperature around school was 6ºC this morning and has risen slowly during the day but is still below the 16ºC statutory minimum. Because of this, I have made the decision to the shut the school at 1.00pm today and have organised for the transport companies to collect the students then.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) I am closing the school to Years 7, 8 and 9. There are enough areas which have heating to accommodate the other three years and I hope to be able to get emergency heaters in school to heat sufficient rooms for all years from Wednesday.
I will update you again tomorrow and apologise for the inconvenience this causes.
