Dear Parent/Carer

DISRUPTION TO LEARNING & TEACHING

Over the past week, we have experienced disruption to the school day due to fire alarms being set off. On two occasions these have been accidental, however on the other occasions, the alarms have been set off maliciously.

We have identified the pupils responsible for yesterday’s fire alarm and have contacted their parents regarding consequences for such actions.

Whilst our pupils behaved maturely and sensibly during the fire evacuations, the type of behaviour which led to several evacuations is unacceptable.  It causes disruption to pupils’ learning as well as putting an unnecessary strain on our emergency services.

We will be speaking to all pupils about the importance of sensible behaviour around the campus at forthcoming assemblies.

I would ask that you support us by discussing the importance of behaving responsibly around school with your child.

Yours sincerely

Joan Daly

Head Teacher
