Summerhill Primary School closed after medical emergency

A primary school has been closed for two days after a member of staff was involved in a medical emergency.

West Midlands Police said it was called to Summerhill Primary School in Tipton at about 12:00 GMT and a 40-year-old man was taken to hospital.

Governors for the school said it would remain closed until Monday to make appropriate arrangements for reopening.

They said the incident did not affect any pupils.

Roy Rickus, chair of governors, said: "All pupils were unaware of the incident and the school day continued as normal until parents collected their children after the school had contacted them.

"At no point has pupil or staff health and safety been put at risk."

Sandwell Council said it was providing support to the school to ensure it is ready to open as normal on Monday.
