Flash Ley school will reopen to pupils and staff on 6 January.
Remedial works have now finished in the Early Years area of the school building, and the air has been continually tested to ensure the whole site is safe. This means staff can now start preparing classrooms ahead of a return to site.
Although there is still a small amount of work to be done in other areas of the school, the majority of classrooms are now finished and ready to accommodate pupils.
Staffordshire County Council officers will work with head teachers and governors to ensure the school building is ready, and teachers will work with children to get everything set for their return to Flash Ley in the New Year.
County Councillor Ben Adams, Cabinet Member for Learning and Skills said:
“Everyone has worked hard to get the Flash Ley building safe and ready for pupils and teachers to return. I know today’s news will be welcomed by parents and school staff, and I want to thank them and the entire school community for their patience and support over the months the school site has been out of use.
“We must concentrate now on getting everything ready so pupils can enjoy the New Year back in their old school.”
Head teachers of Flash Ley Karan Williams and Kerri Fenton said:
“This is the news we’ve all been waiting for. Our journey is in its final stages and we are really excited about the New Year and continuing our successful future back at Flash Ley. We want to express our upmost thanks to everyone; our dedicated staff, the resilient children, loyal parents, the local community and County for supporting us in what has been a unique situation.”
