"As schools reopen for the autumn, we know that there might be Covid-19 cases but we will continue to do all we can to keep children and young people safely back in school where they belong.

"Due to patient confidentiality, we cannot comment on individual cases but parents and carers can be assured their schools will contact them should they need to take any action.

"People can also continue to help reduce the risk of transmission by following government guidance, including social distancing and practising good hand hygiene.

"It is vital that anyone who is symptomatic self-isolates and seeks a test."
