Yet another East Yorkshire primary school has been forced to send a year group into self-isolation after a case of coronavirus was discovered.

Initial reports had suggested that two year groups had been sent home from Martongate Primary School in Bridlington, however its headteacher has announced that just one is now self-isolating.

The bubble has been told to stay away from school for 14 days after confirmation of the positive test.

It comes as Year 3 pupils at nearby Quay Academy remain at home after a pupil tested positive for Covid-19 there.

Parents were asked to collect their children from the Oxford Street school before a deep clean of the site was carried out.

The latest case in Bridlington also follows a Year 4 pupil at Burlington Junior School testing positive last weekend and Year 11s at Bridlington School also being told to self-isolate after a "member of the school community" tested positive for Covid-19".

Responding to the latest case in the town, David Carruthers, headteacher at Martongate Primary School, said: “We have received confirmation that a pupil has tested positive for coronavirus.

“In line with Public Health England guidance the affected individual has now entered self-isolation.

“We have advised anyone who came into close contact with the pupil to enter self-isolation for 14 days, in line with Government guidance.

“Parents and staff have been informed and we will continue to keep them up to date with any further actions.

“We look forward to welcoming back the children and staff within the affected bubble at the end of their self-isolation period."

More than a dozen schools and colleges in Hull and the East Riding are now missing student bubbles as a result of the virus.

Bishop Burton College, Wilberforce Sixth Form College and Wolfreton School and Sixth Form College are also among those where students are working from home.
