A SECOND Bradford school has reported cases of Covid-19 in just the second week back of the new school year.

The positive cases have been reported at Wilsden Primary School, with one parent saying there are six confirmed cases in just one class.

Bradford Council said the school is working to minimise spread and it is supporting the school.

The parent, who asked not to be named, said his daughter has contracted the virus after returning to school last week after the summer holidays.

He said she is "poorly" and half a dozen children in the class has also tested positive.

"My wife has caught Covid from our daughter and even though she is fully vaccinated she is really sick, she is ready for hospital it's that bad," he said.

"I've spoken to Publich Health England, Bradford Council and the school, they've said they can't do anything.

"Our eldest is at upper school and is classed as vulnerable, so we've had to move to our holiday home in North Yorkshire to protect him.

"The school is full of Covid; it's six kids in one class, it's terrible."

These cases follow yesterday's report of cases at Shirley Manor Primary School in Wyke.

A Bradford Councol spokesperson said: “The school has had some positive cases. The school has put in place steps to minimise the infection spreading.

"We continue to provide support to schools all across the district at this difficult time. It’s important that we all work together to stop the spread of the virus.”
