Temporary fault

24th November 2000 at 00:00
I WOULD like to emphasise that Upbury Manor school was in the temporary position of reducing the number of school days for some pupils for just one week before half-term.

Our situation did not compare to other schools that have run a shortened week for some time. Our exam classes were protected and only younger pupils had partial schooling for that one week.
