    The school IS in a bit of a dodgy area too!

    When my last place had the feed upped to something capable or running the school properly we had 3 power downs, each lasting 3 days, spread over a 4 week period. It was easy to plan around and as long as you are kept in the loop it is still workable. It did mean a busy few weeks prior to summer (including closing off 2 classrooms to get them ready for new suites / kits) and some delay on things until the October half-term, but it shows the need to plan to do things spread out over a whole year, and not jsut squeezed into a few weeks in the summer (YMMV as some schools cannot work like this for a number of reasons).
