A Kilburn school was forced to close to all but key worker children after a staff member contracted Covid-19.

Kilburn Park School, in Malvern Road, was informed of a confirmed case of Covid-19 by Public Health England.

In a letter to parents on Monday, headteacher Marina Shah, said remote learning is in place for pupils as the school continues to monitor the situation.

She said: "The small number of children who have been in close contact with the individual who has tested positive for coronavirus have received a letter informing them that their child must stay at home for 10 days.

"The school remains open for key workers and your child should attend if you are a key worker.

"All other household members who remain well, must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’," she added.
