Full Closure

Cottingley Village Primary School

Re-opens 07/09/2015
Submitted by Cottingley Village Primary School
Reason Major water leak.
Additional Notes Major water leak. Specialist parts required, earliest delivery is Wednesday 2/9/15 due to bank holiday weekend.
Parents please accept our sincere apologies for the school closure but this is due to circumstances beyond our control and for the health and safety of all our pupils and staff. The council have been out to our site today and have a plan of action.
Please check this page each day for updates and your mobile phones. We will update information for you when we can. If there is any possibility of a different opening date we will let you know.
Thank you very much for your understanding.

1/9/15: The council have informed us this afternoon that the specialist parts will not be delivered until late on Wednesday (2/9/15). This means that the works will not be complete until the weekend. Unfortunately, as a consequence of this, we are not able to open school now until Monday 7th September. We appreciate how frustrating this is for everyone and are very sorry.
We will be updating information on the school website for new Reception parents and children who are due to go on educational visits next week- we still intend to go ahead with these. Permission slips for Y4 will be uploaded onto the school website and we will text you more information to ensure the children are still able to go and enjoy their planned experience. There will also be some general information for all parents on the website tonight.
