A DISTRICT school which was 'gutted' to have to close due to a burst pipe will be open tomorrow. 

Worth Valley Primary School has confirmed it will be open to pupils tomorrow after a burst pipe damaged two learning spaces. 

The water supply was turned off while the repairs were carried out. 

In a statement issued by the school, it has been highlighted that all children will be back in their usual learning spaces tomorrow.

The school has thanked parents for their understanding with the short notice.

The statement said: “We are absolutely gutted to have to close our school today.

“Sadly, over the weekend, a water pipe burst and damaged two learning spaces. Our water supply has been turned off while the repairs are being undertaken. Without running water, we simply could not open our doors to our brilliant children this morning.

“We are working tirelessly to ensure the school will be open tomorrow. Work is nearing completion on the pipe, and we are fortunate that no children will have to move classrooms because of the water damage.

“Finally, we also just wanted to say thank you. We appreciate the impact that closing a school at short notice can have on our families – but every member of our community has been so kind and understanding.

“Also, the support of our staff and our Trust, Leading Learners, has ensured that we will be open again tomorrow. It has been a real team effort.”
