A HEREFORDSHIRE primary school has closed with a number of Covid-19 cases among its pupils and staff.

Almeley Primary School will be closed between 10 and 14 days.


School business manager Jayne Irwin confirmed that the school would be closed subject to confirmation.

"We have a lot of children and staff who have tested positive," said Mrs Irwin.

"Because of the high number of Covid cases coming in and the number of staff having tested positive it leaves us short staffed."
