Chemical spill in Science Lab

On Wednesday 1 August,  elemental mercury was spilled when a container broke in one of our science labs.  Unfortunately the spill was not reported immediately and we are now working to ensure the room is being cleaned to hazardous material standards.

We have been advised that the health risk to students is minimal if they have not already presented with any of the symptoms outlined on this Elemental Mercury Fact Sheet. Parents have been contacted and we have advised them to visit A&E if they have any concerns.
