"As a precautionary measure, and until the device is examined by specialist officers, pupils & staff have been moved to nearby schools and lunch will be provided.

"We anticipate that pupils can return to ICHS later this afternoon and pick up/end of school day arrangements will be unaffected. A further update will be provided later this afternoon."
