In a letter, the school says: "As parents will be aware, on Friday morning last week, school were notified of a positive case in our Year 2 (Class 2) bubble.

"School acted in accordance with Public Health England (PHE) by informing parents as soon as this confirmation was received.

More Covid-19 coverage:

"Following advice from Public Health England the following measures have been taken: As a precaution, all Class 2 children are to self-isolate for 14 days—guidance on this can be found on the website, staff within Class 2 are to self-isolate for 14 days, no other year groups are affected.

"As a result, children from Class 2 will remain at home until we re-open the class on Thursday 24th September.

"During this two week period, children from Class 2 will receive a package of home learning via email—Miss Hancock will have been in contact over the last few days with information about this. If you haven’t already done so, please can families ensure email addresses are with the office, as this will enable work to be sent."
