The school has been closed today, Thursday 18th January, due to the power cut which affected the whole of Fen Drayton and other villages. I apologise to all children and parents for having to close the school. I realise that it must have caused great inconvenience and disappointment: it was not a decision that we took lightly. Without power, there were no lights or computers working in school and we could not provide any lunches for anyone. Even more importantly, the school telephones were not working and mobiles could not be recharged. If there had been any emergency in school, it would have been very difficult for us to contact parents quickly, so we judged that it was not safe to open.
Power is now restored to the school; I have checked the building and grounds and we should be fine to reopen tomorrow. I look forward to seeing everyone back then. Thank you for your understanding.
