A Nottinghamshire primary school has had to ask children across four year groups to isolate, after two confirmed cases of Covid-19.
Two bubbles of children and staff at East Bridgford St Peter’s Academy will now need to stay at home for 10 days.
A letter was sent out and published on the school’s website confirming the news.
Two pupils tested positive for Covid-19 on June 7 and June 8 meaning bubbles will have to isolate until June 19 – returning to school on Monday, June 21.
The letter stated: “LKS2 (Year 3 and Year 4) and UKS2 (Year 5 and Year 6) Children and Staff to Self-Isolate.
“I am sorry to inform you that we have been informed today of two confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the LKS2 and UKS2 bubbles.
“It is now a requirement that your child stays at home and self-isolates.
“The pupils who tested positive were in school on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th June, so your child’s self-isolation period will end after 10 days from that date – i.e. they will no longer be required to isolate from Saturday 19th June.
“All children will return to school – as long as they are symptom free – on Monday 21st June.”
The school remains open for other bubbles.
