End of Year Disco Cancellation due to the Police Commissioner Elections but School Stays Open

28th June 2019
If you live close to school, you may have already received
your polling card for the Police Commissioner election which
will be held on Thursday 18th July.
On this occasion, we have successfully appealed against the
instruction to close school so that it may be used as a
polling station. We have had to close school twice already
this academic year and are acutely aware of the disruption
and inconvenience this can cause to families.
For this election only, we have made arrangements with the
Election Office to use our Community Room with officers in
position to ensure safeguarding procedures are appropriately
managed. We have been advised that we would be unable
to stay open during elections with expected higher turnouts.
Sadly, however, this means that we are
unable to hold our planned disco on that
night and we have been unable to find a
suitable date to reschedule to at this late
stage. We are sorry if anyone is
disappointed.
Thank you for your continuing support and patience.
