A Muswell Hill school has closed for a deep clean amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Fortismere School announced the news over the weekend and is due to reopen on Tuesday (March 17).
It posted on its website: “Parents: School closed on Monday 16th March for deep clean. Please see parentmail 16th March for further details.”
On Twitter, a parent said: “Companies close down their offices for 2 weeks after an infection among the staff is discovered. Why is the @Fortismere_Sch response different?
“A one-day closure for deep clean does not seem like an adequate response. I’m really concerned for the safety of my daughter.”
