A WREXHAM school is expected to be closed until later this week due to covid-19.

It has been announced that St Christopher’s School in Wrexham will be closed today (Monday, November 30) and tomorrow.

A Wrexham Council spokesman said: "The school’s primary-aged children have been self-isolating since the end of last week and following a number of further cases in recent days, the decision has been taken to close to allow a deep-clean to take place.

“The decision has been made jointly by both Wrexham Council and the school, and with the best interests of everyone at heart, and to help keep our children, parents, carers, school staff and communities as safe as possible.

“The school will hopefully reopen on Wednesday (December 2). Parents and carers will be kept fully informed.”
