A FLOOD-HIT school is ready to reopen.

Hartford Manor Primary School will welcome pupils tomorrow after being forced to close due to flooding.

Water poured through the ceiling as the building's drainage system was overwhelmed following heavy rainfall overnight.

But, with all safety checks complete, the school will be back open on Friday (May 24).

Acting head teacher Jan Diamond said: "We have had confirmation from the electricians that the safety checks are now complete and providing nothing changes overnight, the school will be open tomorrow in the usual way for children in reception to year six."

The two nursery rooms still need time to dry and so, a reduced nursery service will be based in the mobile classroom.

As such, Mrs Diamond has said it would be "most helpful" if anyone who can keep their nursery child at home on Friday does so, with refunds given.

Meanwhile, children attending Breakfast Club in years one to six will be based in the school hall.

Nursery and reception children attending Breakfast Club will be based in the mobile classroom. 

"Thank you again for your patience today," Mrs Diamond added.

"We look forward to seeing the children back in school tomorrow."
