Mrs Wilson said: "Teaching staff have been providing all children with online lessons and remote learning activities as well as undertaking wellbeing checks. Where required, we have also been working with the Department for Education to provide laptops to those children who are eligible."

Both classrooms affected have been deep cleaned and Mrs Wilson emphasised the school has a thorough Covid risk assessment in place.
