A Hornchurch primary school reopened today, after flooding caused structural damage in the classrooms.
Parents and members of the Ardleigh Green community raised more than £7,000 for Ardleigh Green Infants School in Ardleigh Green Road after the school was closed last week, on Monday, March 5.
The initial target of £5,000 was reached within two days, and more than 300 people donated money.
Today (Monday, March 12), the school reopened with some alternative arrangements.
Headteacher Val Morris explained that some of the children have been relocated to the Junior School and the Year 2 classrooms are being used to house the school’s 90 children from reception.
Mrs Morris told the Recorder: “Parents have set up a just-giving page and I am most grateful because support has been overwhelming.
“We have been inundated with responses from parents wanting to raise money and to help with the clear up process.”
