A CLASS at a Hereford school has been shut until further notice.

Covid infections among staff have hit Wrens class at Blackmarston School in Honddu Close.

The class will be closed from tomorrow (Monday, March 21).


In a statement the school said: "We will notify parents and carers as soon as possible when we are able to re-open the class. Thank you for understanding and support."

Blackmarston is a state-funded school for children between the age of two and 11. It caters exclusively for children who have special educational needs.

It closed for two weeks in 2020 after several Covid cases were confirmed. The school re-opened after a deep clean, in which a fogger was used to disinfect all its rooms.
