A school in Herefordshire will remain partially closed for the remainder of this week due to cases of COVID-19 causing staff shortages.

An update from Blackmarston School was shared by Herefordshire Council this morning. It said:

“Wrens Class will be closed from Monday 21st March until Friday 25th March, due to staff shortages arising from Covid infections within the class team. We will notify parents and carers as soon as possible when we are able to re-open the class and in the meantime, remote learning will be made available to families. Thank you for your understanding and support, we will do our very best to re-open once it is safe to do so.”
