Leicester City Council has put in place arrangements to enable pupils at Catherine Junior School to get back to studying, following a fire at their school earlier this month. As of 12 November, schools nearby will accommodate different year groups.
Letters are now being sent to all parents and carers of children at the school explaining where they will be accommodated, both immediately and in the longer term while the school remains out of use.
The arrangements have been put in place for the remainder of the Autumn term:
- 104 pupils in Year 6 - Rushey Mead Secondary School, Melton Road, Leicester, LE4 7PA (welcome meeting on 9 November at 2.00pm)
- 98 pupils in Year 5 - Soar Valley Training Centre, Gleneagles Avenue, Leicester, LE4 7GY (welcome meeting on 9 November at 2.00pm)
- 100 pupils in Year 4 - Rushey Mead Primary School, Gipsy Lane, Leicester, LE4 6RB (welcome meeting on 9 November at 2.00pm)
- 94 pupils in Year 3 - Taylor Road Primary School, Taylor Road, Leicester, LE1 2JP (welcome meeting on 9 November at 9.00am)
The city council is working to establish a new, temporary school on the playing fields of Abbey Community Primary School to be used in 2013 until the existing junior school is recovered or alternative arrangements are put in place.
