Peterborough: School To Remain Shut

7 September 2012, 16:06

Newark Hill Primary School in Peterborough will remain closed next week after an outbreak of legionella.

Tests found evidence of the bacteria in the school's water systems.

Peterborough City Council has now decided to wait for 'full test results which require a longer incubation period.'

The results of these tests will be known 'towards the end of next week', according to Peterborough City Council.

The school's hot and cold water systems have also been chlorinated to try and eradicate the bacteria.

Students are being set work to do at home while the school remains closed.

A statement from Peterborough City Council reads: "Pupils will be set homework via parentmail and staff are working in available office space around the city. 

The headteacher and senior management staff will be at the school to answer calls from parents."
