All pupils to return to mite-affected school in Walney
Last updated at 10:20, Friday, 04 October 2013
WALNEY School will reopen to all pupils on Monday, following an outbreak of harvest mites which had been biting pupils and staff.
Pupils will be given timetables with room changes next week as some areas in the building cannot be used.
The school has looked at the available accomodation on site to make sure disruption is kept to a minimum.
Helen Collis, acting headteacher, said: “The priority for Walney School is the educational provision of our young people and I appreciate that the collapsed timetable currently in place is not ideal.
“That aside it has given us the opportunity to rationalise our available accommodation and I am pleased to inform you that from Monday October 7 all pupils will resume a full timetable.
“Due to the loss of teaching rooms every available space is being used within the original building.
“Moving all pupils into the accommodation provided by the original building will present some logistical problems but through working together we will make this move a success.”
