Flood damage Walsall school to re-open to some pupils

By Richard Guttridge | Walsall | News | Published:

A school which was forced to close after suffering flood damage will re-open to some pupils on Monday - but others will be taught elsewhere all week.

Damage to the school's hall after the flood

Some pupils will be allowed back at St Peter's Catholic Primary School in Bloxwich after a leaking toilet pipe caused damage.

However, children Years 4 and 6 will be taught at Stan Ball Community Centre for the week, while Year 5 pupils will go to St Thomas More School. Pupils in Years 2 and 3 will return to the school on Monday and those in Year 3 the following day.

Nearly £2,000 has now been raised for the school through an online fundraising page.

In a message to parents, headteacher Debbie Beirne said: "We are pleased to say that with the generosity of the community and our feeder school St Thomas More we are able to offer a learning environment for our children.

"It's not an ideal scenario and we know there will be some difficulties that may continue to impact you as families."
