Flood damage Walsall school to re-open to some pupils
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.
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."
