Push to re-open flood-hit schools

147337164County council staff are working round the clock so schools in flood-hit areas open as usual after the half-term break.

Education and property teams are putting in a big effort alongside schools to ensure pupils can return to classrooms on Monday.

As flood water levels begin to drop, a clean-up operation is in full swing with debris being removed, repairs done and checks carried out on heating and electrical systems.

Five out of 91 state schools across Spelthorne, Runnymede and Elmbridge – the areas worst hit by the severe weather – could remain closed when half-term ends. They are:

  • Thorpe Lea Primary, Egham
  • Riverbridge School, Knowle Green
  • The Hythe, Egham
  • Magna Carta School, Chertsey
  • St Anne’s Catholic Primary, Chertsey.

They are either still flooded or are accessed from roads that have been closed because of high water levels.

The latest information will be published on individual schools’ websites and the county council’s website will be updated regularly. Parents can also call the council’s contact centre on 03456 009009.
