The Tweet said: "URGENT! School is closed, we have arrived this morning to find we have no water. Apologies for the short notice but we have no alternative."

One parent reacted angrily to the Tweet by informing the school that not all parents check Twitter.

The school went on to say: "It is a health and safety issue, no toilets, no hand washing facilities and no water in the kitchen. We can only apologise but we do not make these decisions lightly."
