Books for fire-hit school

Betws Primary School's library was destroyed by a fire nearly a month ago, leaving the children with no books to read. The school got in touch with ITV's Daybreak to ask for help to re-stock it.

Fire-damaged Bridgend school will reopen today

Understandably, this has been an upsetting incident for all pupils, and staff and council officers are arranging support for those children who need it.

The school will be open to all pupils on Wednesday as it is important that they have the opportunity to access the support which will be in place for them. However, the Flying Start facility will be closed.

We are now working to see how pupils can be accommodated until the end of the summer term so that their education continues with as little disruption as possible.
