Dear parents/carers,

As you are probably aware  by now, we are having problems with the heating of the old part of the building.

We are having new boilers fitted as part of a Lancashire efficiency project. These are approximately one week from completion.

Our problem is that a pump has failed on the old system which supplies the older part of the school. We have hired electric heaters for all of the rooms affected to see us through the week, when we anticipate a return to a fully working system.

I felt it important to let you know the situation as I am sure you are receiving many sob stories and appeals to stay at home. We are fully open and coping with the situation in order to continue to further the learning of our students.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Mr Trickett.
