Heating issues force Lincoln village school to close

A Lincoln village primary school has been forced to close its doors due to issues with the building’s heating.

Sturton by Stow Primary School told parents on the evening of Monday, January 20 that the system was broken and that engineers were awaiting parts to fix the issue.

With temperatures at around freezing on Tuesday morning, the school said it would not be safe to allow children to attend.

The school posted a statement on its Facebook page: “Unfortunately the heating at school is broken so we have been forced to close tomorrow (Tuesday, January 21).

“An engineer has been out and identified the repair that is needed but we are awaiting the part. We will update you as soon as we have any more information.

“We understand the inconvenience this may cause however without heat the temperature will be too low for us to keep the children warm and safe.

“We thank you for your understanding and support.”
