Coronavirus: St Clement's High becomes latest West Norfolk school to confirm case
A West Norfolk secondary school has this evening become the latest in the borough to confirm a positive coronavirus case.
Officials from the St Clements High School in Terrington St Clement say they were informed today that a Year 10 had contracted the infection.
But they say no-one else has been told to isolate, as the individual concerned had been isolating at home for 10 days prior to the result being received.
Headteacher Nigel Willingham said: "The Department of Education and the Norfolk Outbreak Team have advised us that no further action is required at this time because the student had already been isolating, and that no student or member of staff needs to isolate.
"We understand parents might be worried but we want to assure them the measures we have taken to date are in line with government advice and guidelines, and we will continue to monitor the situation.
"St Clement's will reopen next week after the half term break for all year groups as previously planned, all students should continue to attend as normal if they remain well."
The announcement follows the news earlier today that Year 11 students at the King Edward VII Academy in Lynn have been told to self-isolate until November 9 following reports of Covid-19 cases there.
A positive test has also been recorded at the Greyfriars Academy , where 27 pupils have been instructed to isolate.
