ANOTHER Bradford school has urged families to self-isolate following a confirmed coronavirus case in one of its classes.

In a letter seen by the T&A, heads at St Anthony's Catholic Primary School in Shipley said the case solely affected class four and asked parents and pupils in the group to self-isolate.  

However, siblings of pupils in class four are still able to attend school as "they have not been in close contact with the case", according to Public Health England guidelines.

The letter was signed by Mrs E Snelling, executive headteacher, and Mr G Hamilton, the head of school.

In full, the letter read: "We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in Class 4, which means that we have asked the parents of children in this class to self-isolate.

"Brothers and sisters of these children can still continue to come to school as they have not been in close contact with the case. School will remain open to all other classes.

"We have strict social distancing control measures in place between classes, along with enhanced cleaning; it is safe for all other classes to attend on Monday. We know that you may find this concerning but are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England.

"Please be reassured that for most people coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. If you are concerned about anything or your child becomes unwell, please contact school. Online learning will be provided for any of our bubbles that have to isolate.

"Mr Buckroyd will be providing work from Monday for his class. Please take the time to have a read through the information below. We look forward to welcoming Class 4 back into school."
