A shed full of specialist toys and equipment at a school for children with learning and physical difficulties in Trowbridge has been destroyed in a fire. It is not yet clear how last night's fire at Larkrise School was started but police are treating it as suspicious.
– Acting Police Sergeant Jamie Darvill, Wiltshire Police
The effect of this fire has been huge for the school. Each of its 85 pupils benefits from the use of the equipment lost every single day.
The children have already had to be kept out of the area where the fire took place because of the upset it is causing and there is no doubt that the cost of replacing these items and the time it will take will have an adverse affect on their learning.
I urge anyone who knows anything about how this happened to please contact us. Further still if anyone would like to or is able to assist the school get themselves set up again they would be extremely grateful.
