Incident on Meadow Lane UPDATE

Monday 19th October - Evening update

School will be OPEN tomorrow (Tuesday).  The Police will continue their forensic work on The Rose Gardens so Castlesite will remain closed.  Please use the West Derby Village Gates to enter School, or the small gate by our main entrance.  Please do be patient as there will be an increase in traffic due to the few restrictions that remain.  Staff will be on hand along with PSOs to assist with traffic management.  Thank you for your understanding today.

Unfortunately due to the ongoing incident on Meadow Lane we have had to close School today.  I do not like having to close School and would never do so without firm reasons behind the decision.  Having assessed the Health and Safety implications around 6am-7am this morning myself the decision was made.  This involved a conversation with Merseyside Police, the LA and Diocese.  We fully expect to be open tomorrow morning unless something unexpected happens.  I will text / update this message around 4.30pm this afternoon to confirm.


Thanks must go to Merseyside Police who have worked throughout the night and this morning to ensure we are all safe.


We apologise for any inconvenience but I'm sure you will agree the safety of all our pupils is the most important thing.  Reception photographs will be re-booked, hopefully during this week.  We are awaiting confirmation from the photographer.

You may be aware of a Police incident on Meadow Lane.  Currently the road is closed and there is no access to School.  I have spoken to the Police who hope to have the road open by morning, although they were unable to confirm this.  If access is still denied a text will be sent as early as possible. We hope to be open as normal but this is currently out of our control.


Thank you for your understanding.


BREAKFAST CLUB will be CLOSED tomorrow.
