The Redway School, in Netherfield, has temporarily closed until Monday, October 5 due to the confirmed infections.

A Milton Keynes Council spokesperson said: “We can confirm that two staff members have tested positive for Covid-19 at The Redway School. The school is following all government guidance and is working closely with Public Health England and Milton Keynes Council to safeguard the school community.

"The school has temporarily closed and we understand that parents and carers are receiving regular updates.”

A screenshot of a message which was posted on the school's Facebook page said the school has had to close because the staff who are self-isolating are 'critical' to the running of the school.
