Not only have the pupils been hit by Covid - with six cases confirmed - but there are also cases among the staff and parents.

The school said it currently had 40 staff members away, either sick or self-isolating, and as a result it was not safe to keep the school open.

Joy Lane joins a growing number of schools across the county who are closing their doors.
