Renovation work is on track at Summerbridge Primary School following this summer’s flash flooding, to ensure pupils get back into action for a September start.
Two of the classes will be accommodated in temporary classrooms on the school site for a few weeks.
Angela Mundy, the school’s head teacher, said:
As always with Summerbridge school we make the best out of every situation and everyone is excited about the new refurbishments. The local authority has been very instrumental in helping us get back on our feet again and we are very grateful to them.
The staff will all be very busy during the first week of September ensuring that everything is ready for the children in their temporary accommodation on site.
Children will return to school on Monday 10th September and the school hopes to be back into the whole building by October half term, subject to the completion of the renovation works.
County Councillor Arthur Barker, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Schools said:
Flooding causes terrible damage to property but our contractors have been working hard to make the site safe enough for pupils to return to school as early in September as possible. Staff at Summerbridge are very committed to ensuring that teaching and learning in the school will not be impeded in any way.
