A PARENT has spoken out at how a number of Covid cases at a Bradford primary school are being "handled".

The parent, who did not want to be named, has two children at Wibsey Primary School, on North Road, and has said she "is not impressed with how they're handling" Covid cases.

The parent's youngest child has Covid and is self-isolating and she has kept her eldest child, who does not have Covid, at home.

"They've told me they still want me to send her even though we are isolating."

The parent said although her eldest does not have Covid she has been coughing. 

"I can't go out because my youngest child has to isolate and I've got no family nearby. My nearest family member is at Brighouse and he is 78 and is not well himself."

"I've heard there are a lot of cases in school and around Wibsey. I wouldn't forgive myself if my eldest was a carrier and gives it to someone.

"They should go back to full isolation if someone in your house has it."

A Bradford Council spokesperson said: “The school has had some positive cases. The school has measures in place to minimise the risk of 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.

“Any schoolchildren with symptoms should take a PCR test. If the test is positive they must isolate for 10 days. If the test is negative and they feel well, they should attend school.”

The council has also confirmed Covid cases at two other Bradford schools, Wibsey Primary and Shirley Manor Primary.
