An Essendon North Primary School parent says he’ll continue keeping his two children at home until the school is declared safe.

Chris Keating, CEO of the Victorian School Building Authority, told Tom Elliott the oval was now fenced off and would be replaced with synthetic turf over the next few months.

“Nobody has deemed the school safe.
