Mayespark Primary School to be partly reopened next week as flood damage repairs continue
Children at Mayespark Primary School will be back in lessons on Monday after the school was closed because of severe flood damage.
The school, in Goodmayes Lane, was flooded on Friday by a 50mm mains water pipe in the loft area.
It is understood that at least 10 classrooms were damaged and some ceilings have caved in.
But parts of the building have been deemed safe to use and on Monday, nursery classes and years four, five and six will be taught at the school.
Reception, year one, year two and year three children will be transported to Loxford School of Science and Technology, in Loxford Lane, Ilford.
