TEMPORARY classrooms will be put up at St Anne's Catholic Primary School ahead of students' first day back on Wednesday.

In the early hours of Wednesday, October 30, the roof and brickwork on part of the Sutton school collapsed, leaving an entire upstairs classroom exposed to the elements.

Brickwork can be seen hanging from wires, but the Archdiocese claims temporary on-site provision is currently being installed for pupils following half-term.

The Archdiocese of Liverpool, said: "Investigations are underway to determine the cause of the partial collapse of the school building at St Anne’s, Sutton, St Helens where the site is now safe and secure.

"Arrangements are currently being made for alternative on-site provision for the school while the building is being reinstated.

"It is intended to have the school up and running as soon as possible."

The school's website adds: "It is intended to have the school up and running on Wednesday, November 6 at 8.45am.

"Staff will be on site to direct parents and children to the entrance into school.

"Given the current circumstances we have decided to cancel the parents evening until a later date.

"We would like to thank you for your patience at this time and for your generous offers of support."
