Nursery Closure Thursday 3rd May 2018
As we are sure you are already aware, the Local Elections is taking place on Thursday 4th May and due to this the Nursery and Reception classrooms will be open to the general public for voting from 7am up to 10pm. Every year when there is an election taking place in the area, we are asked by the Local authority to accommodate the requirements of the Representation of the People Act, 1983, Chapter 2, Schedule 1, Part III, paragraph 22. This Act empowers the Returning Officer to make use of any school as a polling station, including academies, voluntary aided schools and local authority nursery schools.
In order to safeguard our pupils we have no choice but to close for the Nursery class for this day and Reception children will be taught in other areas of the school. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are sure you will understand that the reason for this closure is beyond our control.
