Thank you to those parents who have pointed out the problems with the security lights on the rear of the building. We have reported this to our Landlords but it appears that this is not just a simple bulb changing exercise. There is a cabling problem which needs a costly repair. Whilst the work has been authorised, our Landlords are unable to tell us when the repair will be carried out.
As the nights are so dark now, if you feel more comfortable, please feel free to use the main entrance instead. Hopefully, the works will be completed sooner rather than later.
