A SCHOOL nursery in the Bradford district has been forced to close for the rest of the week due to staff shortages from Covid-19 and illness.

St Joseph's Catholic Primary Academy, off Queen's Road in the Keighley area, has shut its nursery until next week.

The school annonced that its nursery provision would be closed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

This is due to a shortage of staff caused by illness and Covid-19 cases.

The rest of the school - all the way from Reception up to Year 6 - is still open full time.
