    School closed over safety fears

    By Jonathan Brown on January 30, 2016

    School closed over safety fears

    Health and safety concerns over a panel of smashed glass caused a school in Middlesbrough to close its doors to some pupils.

    Years 7 to 10 Trinity Catholic College were told not to come in on Monday following an incident at the weekend.

    With engineers still unable to determine the reason for the panel’s failure, the emergency closure has been extended to today.

    Inspection planned

    Head teacher Peter Coady says a large glass balustrade panel on the first floor of the school shattered onto the floor below.

    The remaining panels are to be inspected by technicians, following the advice of a health and safety inspector, so the area is still off limits.

    Smashed glass

    Smashed glass has the potential to cause deep lacerations as well as minor cuts and scarring.

    Mr Coady hopes to prevent such injuries by keeping Years 7 to 10 off school for another day. Just Years 11 to 13 will attend, ensuring safe movement around the building.

    He apologises for any inconvenience but adds the safety of the school’s students is paramount.

    Further announcements will be made in due course, with a reopening to all year groups dependent on the outcome of the inspection.
