Fire-hit school decision is due

Fire at school
The Hertfordshire school was badly damaged by the fire

Education chiefs are meeting to discuss where children can attend classes after a fire caused extensive damage to a Hertfordshire school.

Parents of pupils from Hillmead Primary School in Woburn Avenue, Bishop's Stortford, were asked to keep children home on Monday following the fire.

Pupils were evacuated from the school on Friday when the blaze broke out.

The head teacher and education officers are meeting to decide what to do between now and the end of term.

Hertfordshire County Council said the school was "severely damaged" by the fire.

An investigation into the cause has begun.
