This afternoon, the fire alarm sounded and it was not a practice. We quickly evacuated the children and brought them to safety in line with our regular practices.
However, we were unable to reset the fire alarm so called the fire brigade as a precaution. The building was checked and the fire officer gave the ‘all clear’ for the children to return to the building.
It appears to have been a fault with the fire alarm system. An engineer will come as soon as possible.
In the meantime, it is business as usual. We are currently making the children a hot chocolate to warm them up. They were all fantastic.
In the event of an emergency, please:
do not ring the school, we will need to keep the line clear for emergency use; and
do not block our main gates as we would need to keep this clear for emergency vehicle access.
We will always update you, via the website, as soon as it is safe to do so.
We will see you at home time as usual.
