BurlingtonJunior School

School Reopening at 1.15pm Today - Monday 21st February

School will be open at 1.15pm today - Monday 21st February - following a closure this morning. 

Dear Parents

We would like to apologise for the disruption caused this morning with the short notice school closure. This was due to a large tree that had fallen into the infant playground, knocking over some large fence panels. This meant that the whole site was not secure and was open to intruders. We tried to temporarily secure the site early this morning, and finally had to make the decision to close until the contractors had arrived as we were struggling to secure it ourselves. We had already booked for tree surgeons and a builder to come in to secure the site first thing, and had to wait for their arrival. I am pleased to say that we have now managed to get the tree cut down and removed. Contractors have also now arrived and managed to secure the site with temporary Heras fencing. We are now able to reopen the school this afternoon for those of you who are able to bring your children back into school.

The gates will be open at 1:15pm to allow children to get to their classrooms and school will close at normal time, with Acorns running as usual. Please use the main gates on Burlington Road at 1.15pm. We will be outside when the gates open if you have any questions. Thank you again for understanding, and once again, a huge apology for the disruption caused this morning.

Best wishes,

Mrs Pip Utting
