A year group at a North Hampshire school is being asked to study from home for the rest of the week due to staff absences caused by Covid.

The year 9 class at secondary school The Clere in Burghclere have been asked not to come into school today (Wednesday) and tomorrow – with Friday being a teacher training day.

The school said on Facebook it had “taken all reasonable actions to maintain normal working practice” but due to high levels of staff absence caused by Covid, it was “now not possible to provide on-site learning for all five year groups”.
