Children from Years 2 and 3, at Dover Park school in Ryde, are the latest to self-isolate.

The primary is currently only open to the children of keyworkers and a handful of others, in line with national government rules.

Those who have not been asked to self isolate should continue to attend.

It comes after a member of the school tested positive for Covid-19.

An Isle of Wight Council spokesperson said: “Public health has offered advice, and consequently a small number of vulnerable and keyworker students that had been attending school, in the Year 2/3 bubble, will need to self-isolate until 19 January, as a precautionary measure.

“High-quality remote learning is already being provided for the children of these year groups throughout this time, and these students will be able to access this immediately.

"The other bubbles remain open for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers.”
