TWO Hereford schools will be partially closed this week as coronavirus causes staff shortages.

Herefordshire Council said Broadlands EYFS in Hereford will be closed for the rest of this week due to Covid-related staff shortages.

Blackmarston School's Puffins Class will also be closed from March 38 until further notice, 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," a spokesperson for the Honddu Close school said.

"We have re-opened Wrens Class as we have had sufficient staff back in school to do this safely. Thank you for your understanding and support."
