A Norfolk high school has reported multiple coronavirus cases and told two year groups to work from home.
It also reported a pupil was found to have Covid-19 as a result of voluntary testing across years seven and eight on December 11, and those that needed to self-isolate had been informed.
On Tuesday (December 15) the school issued another statement via its Instagram account saying the whole of year eight now needed to work from home after a positive case in that year group, while it identified the pupil's close contacts.
The school had earlier told parents it intended to close a day earlier for Christmas on Thursday (December 17) due to "the challenges that this week has brought us, along with the increase in cases locally".
In a letter to parents the school principal Kate Williams acknowledged the circumstances were "worrying" and thanked parents for their caring cooperation.
