Update from Mrs Thompson, 27th June 2016

I am delighted to be able to tell you that school will definitely be open tomorrow, Tuesday 28th June.

Work has been going on all weekend to complete the carpet laying and most of the deep cleaning. Today, contractors and cleaners are completing the sanitisation and school staff are busy unpacking boxes and generally preparing classrooms for the return of children tomorrow.

Childrens’ attendance scores will be unaffected by the closure.

All planned clubs eg wiifit will go ahead as normal this week and a newsletter will be published on Friday.

Once again, many thanks for your understanding and support through this unforeseen crisis.

A message from Alan Lindsay, Deputy Director of Education
24th June 2016

Dear parents and carers,

Firstly, may we open by expressing our thanks for the support we’ve received from parents, governors, staff and the Council,

Following the storm on the evening of 16th June, the School, Wigan Council and their partners have been working together to alleviate the impact of the flooding and have put into place measures to enable the school to reopen as soon as possible.

As you’ve viewed on the School’s website, the flooding has affected the whole of the School to some extent, with the Junior KS2 areas bearing the brunt of the damage and those areas unaffected by the actual flooding, have been used to decant furniture and books into. With these areas being used to sanitise furniture as well.

The carpeting in the flooded areas has been removed, specialist drying equipment has been provided and these areas have been sanitised in preparation for temporary carpets to be laid.

The furniture and equipment will be moved into the classrooms as soon as each area is carpeted, which will allow the remainder of the school to be sanitised.

For further reassurance, we have surveyed the school’s drainage and sanitised all the external play equipment and playareas that were affected by the flood waters.

During the summer break, we will be returning to the school to carry out a package of remedial works, which will include new carpeting, repairs to finishes and decoration.

The approach we’ve taken was the one deemed most suitable, in order for the school to open as soon as possible.

The School has been approached by parents, as to why temporary mobiles were not considered for the school, but one has been provided for the Referendum. We considered temporary accommodation, but due to the time needed to locate units suitable for education and the practicalities of siting within the site, this was discounted and the above approach was put into place.

We do appreciate your support and will see you on Tuesday 28th June, when the school will reopen,


Alan Lindsay,
Assistant Director - Education

Message from Rachel Entwistle, parent:

Families in the community wanted to support our amazing school, therefore a crowdfund donations page has been set up by parents and carers to help the school to get back up and running. If any families in the community would like to show their support and help the school by donating, this would be greatly appreciated and put into good use.

Many thanks
