SCHOOL CLOSURE MONDAY 14TH - WEDNESDAY 16TH OCTOBER 2019. RETURN TO SCHOOL THURSDAY 17TH OCTOBER 2019

SITE INFRASTRUCTURE ISSUES

UPDATE: Friday 11th October 2019

We have seen good progress this week, with a team of contractors on site starting work on the installation of the temporary boiler which we are optimistic will be operational by the close of Wednesday next week.

Unfortunately, having now endured this week of falling temperatures with little sun (which warms the classrooms) and having followed the weather forecast over the weekend and into early next week, I have made the difficult decision in consultation with staff to close the school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures are predicted to drop overnight and not reach above 15 degrees Celsius through the day which will result in school not reaching a comfortable operational level for everyone to work in – children and staff inclusive.

I appreciate this may cause childcare issues but I am hoping by informing you now, it will assist you in making alternative arrangements.

Just to confirm the status of the following events:

NETBALL MATCH – Monday 14th October: will be cancelled.

CROSS COUNTRY – Tuesday 15th October: Children participating in this event may still do so and need to be at Knights Templar School by 1pm at Sports Centre Entrance where Mrs McCabe will meet you. Collection arrangements at the end of the event will remain as previously stated.

Year 6 TOWER OF LONDON TRIP – Wednesday 16th October: this will go ahead as planned. Please meet at Hitchin Railway Station as per instructions. All children will need to bring a packed lunch as there will be no kitchen service in school.

Girls ESFA FOOTBALL MATCH – Wednesday 16th October: this will go ahead as planned.

We anticipate school being back open on Thursday 17th October. Obviously, should we experience further complications we will advise via parentmail. Please attend school at normal time on Thursday morning unless otherwise notified.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards
