North Elmham CE VA Primary School was left with no heating on Monday (February 3) and the decision was taken to shut the school.

A statement on Norfolk County Council's emergency closures website said the school was "freezing cold" and "below the temperature for children to be in school".

At lunchtime on Monday, a spokesman for the school said: "We are hoping the issue will be resolved today.

"Somebody is coming here today to check whether we can get this fixed and open tomorrow."

On Monday afternoon, the school confirmed its heating issue had been fixed and was set to reopen on Tuesday, February 4.
