ANOTHER case of coronavirus has been confirmed at a Bury school.

Pupils and staff from Woodbank Primary School are currently self-isolating after a positive Covid-19 test was returned in one class.

All other school classes remain open, the school confirmed.

Headteacher Kelly Mcadam said: "The safety of our pupils and staff is paramount.

"We drew up comprehensive plans to deal with any Covid outbreak on return to school, in line with guidance from Public Health England (PHE) and the local infection team.

“Unfortunately we have had one case of coronavirus in school.

"This was confined to one year group, which is why after taking advice from PHE, we asked the class and staff in that class to self-isolate.

“We have written to all parents, those whose children are now at home self-isolating, and those in our year groups that are still attending school, to keep them informed."

Robust safety measures have been put in place to keep the school Covid safe, Ms Mcadam said.

Staff are also said to be working to maintain regular communications with parents and families.

And for those pupils who are quarantining, Woodbank has implemented a contingency plan to continue their education remotely.

Ms Mcadam, added: "Parents have been very supportive, realising why we have taken this ‘safety first’ approach to caring for their children.

“We trust that these measures will contain the virus and we look forward to welcoming back all our pupils shortly."

Outbreaks of coronavirus have also been confirmed at two high schools and four more primary schools across the borough.

These are St Gabriel's RC and Bury CE ­High Schools and Lowercroft, Heaton Park, St Bernadette's and Holly Mount Primary Schools.­
