A HEREFORDSHIRE primary school has had to close today (March 11).

This is due to a fault with its fire alarm.

A post on its Facebook page says: "Unfortunately we have had to close the school today.

"This is due to health and safety regulations. The fire alarm is showing a fault.

"We have an engineer on site and we will update you as soon as we can."


It is the second time in three months that a faulty fire alarm has caused the school to close. 

On December 15, the school, which is on Hereford Road, had to shut early.

At the time, a notification provided by Herefordshire Council, said: 

"Please come to school as soon as possible to collect your child.

"Go to the classrooms for reception and years 1, 2, and 3. Year 4 - collect from the normal end of day point.

"Year 5 and 6 children must be collected by an adult on your pick-up list. We will keep you up to date regarding when the fault has been fixed."
