Our KS1 roundhouse has been destroyed by fire

We wake this morning to sad news about our school. Overnight, arsonists have trespassed and set fire to our lower site KS1 roundhouse, completely destroying it. An act of mindless vandalism that could have been so much worse, with the proximity of the roundhouse being close to a wooden fence, the portakabin and the main school building.

We are so, so grateful to those members of the community who quickly contacted the fire service so that the fire could be controlled and put out without damage to other parts of the school. We know that the community will be upset and angry on behalf of the school, particularly for our lower site KS1 pupils, who have now lost the use of their playground and roundhouse. In the meantime, we will arrange alternate provision for playtimes today so as the pupils do not suffer too much.
