The school is getting the heating system upgraded, including the provision of a new oil tank. The builders were in this afternoon and disconnected the old system and switched over to the new tank. Unfortunately they have run into difficulties and the new tank is not working so the school will not have any heat or hot water. As we cannot safely provide dinners or proper hygine for our pupils we cannot open. I have confirmed this with CCMS and Iwill be in the school tomorrow to liase with the builders and keep parents up to date. The builders are confident they can fix the heating by the weekend. We will update parents through the web site and text service.
