Parents of pupils at the primary in Bradford have been advised to self-isolate if they or their children came into contact with two pupils who tested positive for the cornavirus. The West Yorkshire school has advised parents of pupils to self-isolate if they or their children came into contact with the siblings.
In a statement released through Bradford Council, Headteacher Cath Palmer said: "I can confirm that, following the advice of Public Health England, I have contacted the parents of children currently attending the school to alert them to the fact that two relatives who have been attending the school have tested positive for Covid-19.
"We have followed all the correct procedures advised by Public Health England."
The school is remaining closed this week while a deep clean is carried out, although vulnerable children and children of key workers are still able to attend.
