A statement on the Challney Boys website from headteacher Daniel Connor said: "Please note that Stoneygate Road will be closed to all traffic between Dunstable Road and Wellgate Road in the morning. This will cause serious congestion and school will therefore not start until 9.40am.

"Please engage with the following key points:

"Your child should not come to school until 9:40 am Wednesday, 9 June 2021.

"Your child should not report to their normal school entrance, but should report to the Girl's school entrance on Addington Way from where staff will escort him to the boys school. This is because the main school entrance will not be accessible.

"Year 11 are not required to come into school and should remain at home

"Thank you for your cooperation with this and we hope that Stoneygate Road will be back to normal as soon as possible. We will make sure that we provide you with further updates during the course of the day, if possible. so please look out for ParentMail or check the school website."
