The Earls High School sent a letter to parents confirming the case.

It says: "Unfortunately we have just heard of a confirmed case of coronavirus in our school community and as a result there could be quite a number of contacts.

"As a precautionary measure, while we complete our contact tracing we will be sending students from Year 10 home today.

"We will then contact any parents by phone if their son or daughter needs to self-isolate and follow this with a letter.

"Once this is complete we will then make a decision on how school will be for next two weeks for Year 10 and I'll email again later this afternoon."
