    Oakfield Prep

    An independent primary school in south-east London has closed due to an outbreak of coronavirus.

    Oakfield Prep School in Dulwich began sending pupils home on Wednesday after eight Year 6 pupils and two teachers tested positive for coronavirus.

    Half of the school, which sits across two separate sites, remained open until Thursday afternoon but has since closed.

    The school will re-open on 7 June, following the half-term break.

    The Department for Health, Lambeth Council and Public Health England have all been informed.

    Deborah Leek-Bailey, Head of Independent Schools at the Education Development Trust which runs Oakfield Prep, said she was "proud of the way" the school had handled the pandemic.

    She said: "It is clear to see that they constantly place the needs of the pupils at the core of their decision making. Pupil and staff safety is paramount."
