School Closed Thursday 11th March - Update 5

Werrington Primary School

School Closed Thursday 11th March - Update 5

Please find below the latest update regarding the closure of our school due to heating loss.

The engineers are making progress and currently they are welding the new pipe assembly above ground.  Each weld, of which there are five can take up to an hour each to complete.  Once the pipe is lowered into the duct a final weld at a bend will need to be achieved. 

Once the pipe is sealed and connected the system can be re filled as the whole school central heating system has completely drained.  As the pressure builds up in the system every radiator will need to have its cover taken off and bled due to air in the system.  The heating will be turned on and checks will be made to ensure there are no other complications.  This will take some time to achieve.

I have been advised that given all of the above school will not be able to open tomorrow Friday 12th March.  Contractors are prepared to work through the weekend if further problems arise.  However if everything goes to plan we are very hopeful that school will be able to re-open on Monday15th March.  This will be confirmed during Friday if possible or by the end of the weekend.

Work will continue to be placed on the school website and available from the school office. 

Once again I do apologise for the inconvenience this is causing.
