More than 100 children have been told to self isolate after six positive Covid cases were confirmed at Glemsford Primary Academy. 

The school confirmed today that five of the cases were pupils and one was a member of staff. 

Nick George, headteacher at Glemsford Primary Academy, said: “In response, we have closed our nursery, Year 1 and Year 6 bubbles, which means a total of 110 pupils are now isolating.

“We are grateful for the support we have received from our families. Our staff have also been exceptional by going above and beyond to ensure a comprehensive home schooling programme has begun for those asked to isolate.” 

This comes after another school in Suffolk sent children home after a positive Covid case was confirmed yesterday (June 30).
