Thankfully, all of our families were safe following the fire on the 14th floor of Green Court during the early hours of Thursday 21st April; however, many of our families and children had to evacuate their homes (just in their night clothes)
As a school, we spent time that day talking to the families at the community centre that they were evacuated to. We provided spare clothes for our children, as well as toothbrushes & paste, reading books, drawing books & pencils and Mars Bars for anyone from the flats who needed one!
We also popped to Tesco (Skimpot Road) who, while we were there, offered to donate crates of fruit, pastries, biscuits, crisps, cake bars, waters, Fruit Shoots, toiletries and nappies - which we were able to deliver to the families at the centre. A HUGE thank you to Libby and the Tesco team!
Thankfully, most residents have now been allowed to return home but we will continue to support those Pirton Hill children who have been affected by the incident - including those directly or indirectly involved.
