A Nuneaton primary school for children with special education needs will close for a deep clean.
Oakwood Primary School will shut its doors tomorrow (November 18) and is not set to open until next week.
This is so that a deep clean can be carried out.
As well as this, staff and pupils will also be screened for covid-19.
Warwickshire County Council, which is responsible for public health, confirmed the closure.
It is not clear how many positive Covid-19 cases there have been at the Morris Drive-based school.
A Shire Hall spokesperson said: “The school will be closed Thursday and Friday to regain staffing capacity, as well as screen pupils/staff and have a deep clean.”
Nearby George Eliot School has also been impacted by coronavirus.
Extra precautions have had to be put into place at the Raveloe Drive-based school.
Extra screening sessions have been put on by Public Health for those pupils in one of the affected classes.
Midlands Academy Trust, which runs the school, confirmed that there has now been eight members of staff and five pupils who have tested positive for coronavirus and this has led to many class bubbles being told to stay at home.
