A primary school has pushed the Autumn term start date back by a week due to water damage.

Following ‘substantial’ water damage to the school building, Shaw Wood Academy in Armthorpe will now be closed until Monday September 9.

Headteacher Sharon Faulkner said they were working hard to ensure the damage would be repaired as quickly as possible.

She added: “The water damage was due to unforeseen circumstances, and I’m optimistic that school will re-open on September 9. While the school is closed next week, we will use four of those days for teacher training.”
