Speaking to the Telegraph & Argus, headteacher Lisa Simpson said: "Today we were advised by Public Health England that there had been a confirmed case of Covid-19 within the school. 

"Following their advice from Public Health England and national guidance we identified the small number of children (the Y3/4 class bubble) who have been in close contact with the affected child and they have been asked to stay at home and self-isolate for 14 days as a precaution. These children are able to continue their learning remotely from home with their class teacher.

"The school remains open and children should continue to attend if they remain well. If anybody else in the school begins to display symptoms, they will be sent home to isolate. As a Trust we are able to refer staff for tests if they are displaying symptoms and we work with our families to ensure they are also able to access a test where required. 

"We wish to assure our parents that as a Trust we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England and the local authority. We would like to encourage our parents to continue to follow latest Government social distancing guidelines, and would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their continued support."
