A letter has been sent to all parents to explain the situation, and the 'small number' of pupils who will now have to self isolate for ten days have been informed.

The letter said: "We have been made aware of a positive lateral flow test result within the school."

The school said it was working closely with Public Health England and was closely monitoring the situation.
