At 11:20am today, we were forced to close the school due to power issues in the local area.
We lost one phase of our power supply, followed by a second - then we were advised to shut all power down due to the evolving nature of the fault. This left our emergency lighting and fire systems on short-term battery back-up. So, for safety reasons, we were forced to take the decision to close. Thank you to all parents for responding to our messages and collecting children.
SSE are working to restore power to the site (and surrounding area).
We have been advised that we should have power restored during the evening and are planning to be open as usual tomorrow (Thursday - for Party Day [mufti day]).
WE WILL CONFIRM EITHER WAY BY GROUPCALL MESSAGE AS SOON AS WE KNOW.
PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES.
UPDATE: Weds - 17:40
We are in communication with engineers and we may need engineering and ground works to fix the issue. We aim to make a decision by 20:00 this evening regarding tomorrow, to give parents chance to make emergency arrangements for childcare, if necessary.
Thank you for your support and patience.
