The headteacher of Billingshurst Primary School said on Twitter she is making the request in an attempt to prevent disruption to the school’s festive performances.

In a statement, she said: “I am writing to Horsham District Council to ask them not to use the school as a polling station on 12th December so as not to disrupt our Christmas performances booked for that day.

“I will share the response as soon as I receive it.”

Horsham District Council has been approached for comment.
