PARENTS have been sent urgent messages to collect their children from a Basildon primary school.

It is believed there are structural problems with a wall in the juniors part of Bardfield School in Clay Hill Road, in Vange.

All pupils have been moved to the infants department for their own safety.

Children are being released from the school one at a time. 

Parents received phone calls and texts from the school at about 12.50pm, telling them to collect their children.

They have been warned the school could be shut for a few days.

The Echo has contacted the school but staff have been unavailable for comment.
