Fulwood Academy will remain closed for the rest of the week after problems with the fire alarm.Advertisement
The school has set up an emergency control room to ensure children’s education continues during the closure.
Pupils are being asked to log onto the school website and Classcharts to pick up work set by their teachers.
Teaching staff are in dialogue with students, setting work, giving feedback and making sure that students’ education continues.
All students have access to the school’s website and have been set work to complete. Year 11 students are a key priority and the school is planning to run additional classes once the school reopens to ensure students can catch up with work missed.

Headteacher Philip Grant said the closure was due to extensive damage caused by the fire alarm and sprinkler system during the bad weather at the weekend.
He said: “Student and staff safety is absolutely paramount and until the systems are fully functional we cannot reopen. I realise that this causes inconvenience to families and students but unfortunately we must remain closed until the school is safe.”
The school plans to reopen on Monday December 9.
