You may have seen on the news that controlled disposal of science resources have taken place at a number of schools across the country.
This is following advice issued by the Government advisory science service CLEAPSS, after it was identified that a chemical known as 2,4-DNPH (often used in Chemistry lessons) is potentially hazardous if not stored correctly. The Police and the Army’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) team have been called to the school, purely as a precautionary measure, to establish whether controlled disposal is necessary. If the disposal is necessary, the EOD will carry out the procedure during the night.
There is no cause for alarm. There is no risk to students, staff, local residents or buildings.
School remains open as normal for students tomorrow – Thursday 3rd November and for the rest of the week.
