A specialist school in Ainsdale has closed today according to teachers after a confirmed case of Covid-19 in the school.
An alert was sent to parents at Merefield School in Ainsdale last night from teachers to say that a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 had been made.
It is currently unconfirmed whether it is a pupil or teacher who has the virus.
Staff at the Westminster Drive based school made the decision to close the entire building and send everyone home today as a matter of safety.
An alert to parents reads “we have just had confirmation of a confirmed case of Covid-19 so as a precautionary measure we have no choice but to close the school for tomorrow (Thursday).”
Due to the lateness of the closure, staff admitted they didn’t have time to contact Public Health bosses before making the drastic safety decision.
