School reopens after coronavirus case



A school which had to close following a coronavirus case has reopened to pupils today.

Peak Education caters for children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties and includes those excluded from mainstream schools.

An individual at the independent school, which is based in Audley, tested positive for Covid-19 at the weekend.

Managing director Paul Ball said: “We were informed on Monday and closed the school that day. It was deep-cleaned on Tuesday. Students are back today.”

Around six primary age pupils were kept at home for the two days and were assigned work remotely.

A small number of people who had direct contact with the individual who has the virus are still self-isolating.

Peak Education also operates schools in Shelton and two other sites in Staffordshire, which were unaffected. It specialises in using outdoor education to re-engage pupils in learning and has several activity centres.
