Crags Community School reopens to pupils

A PRIMARY school which has been closed for a week due to a faulty fire alarm system has reopened today (Thursday).

Crags Community School, in Maltby, closed just 15-minutes after pupils arrived last Wednesday (March 1) and children were sent home.

It has been closed since then while investigations into its fire protection system were carried out, which head teacher David McNaught, said was a “precautionary measure”.

Donna Sutton, the school’s chairperson of governors, said a report had now been produced on the fault and the school would reopen today.

Ms Sutton, said: “We have now received the assurances we were seeking to re-open the school. 

“A full statement about reopening of the school will be provided as soon as possible. 

“As a result school reopened as usual from today (Thursday, March 9) from 8.45am. 

“The two-year-old provision will also be open as normal from 9am.

“Breakfast club and after school clubs will not reopen until Monday (March 13).

“Once again we apologise for any inconvenience this has caused, but the children’s safety is always priority.”
