Samantha Petchey, Partnership Head, said: "The trust and I were very sad to have to let parents and carers know that we had to close our school today due to what happened.

"We are doing everything possible to help support the police with their investigation.

"This is a very upsetting situation and we're working hard to welcome pupils back into the school tomorrow."
