STUDENTS from two schools were sent home this morning after problems with the building’s heating and water systems.
On Monday 19 December Oakdene Primary School on Ashton Avenue in Rainhill and Rainford High on Higher Lane in Rainford were closed due to heating and water problems.
Problems with freezing water in pipes have been reported after freezing temperatures in recent days.
This causes problems when the ice expands and increases the water pressure, which can lead to boiler problems, a lack of running water, or leaks.

St Helens Council confirmed the two schools were experiencing issues with their heating and water systems but did not go into the specific details of the problems.
Distance learning was conducted throughout the day and schools hope to reopen tomorrow.
Staff should notify parents and guardians accordingly by tonight.
