It's been said the actions are just precautionary and no one in the school has tested positive for the virus.

George, six, and Charlotte, four, will be given "remote learning" lessons from home, it's believed.

This will ensure that children have continuity of learning when they are unable to attend school.

A spokesperson for Thomas’s London Day Schools said: "Due to the increasing numbers of children and staff being absent from school due to the Coronavirus situation, Thomas’s London Day Schools have decided to move to remote learning from Friday, March 20.

"From this date the curriculum will be taught through online learning platforms and we have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system.

"We appreciate the support of our school community as we continue to provide the best possible solution for our pupils during these challenging times."
