Shooters Grove Primary School in Stannington was closed last Friday to allow the entire building to be deep cleaned in a bid to prevent the spread of Covid-19 among pupils, teachers and staff.

In a tweet, the school said the closure decision had ‘not been taken lightly’ but the deep clean was to ‘prevent further Covid-19 transmission’.

Because a number of bubbles within the school had been isolating at the time of the closure, they have not all returned yet.

On Monday, the infants and nursery were both closed and only three primary school year groups were allowed in for lessons.

Following Public Health guidance, more bubbles will gradually return through through this week and next.

Schools across Sheffield have been hit with coronavirus cases, with children and teachers forced to isolate since the summer break.
