More children and staff at a York school are staying at home after another case of Covid-19 was confirmed there.

A further three staff and 30 children are self-isolating at Haxby Road Primary Academy because of the new case, this time affecting Year 3.

Last week, 12 pupils and staff in the school’s Enhanced Resource Provision and 65 children and staff in early years had to self-isolate.

All children and staff are expected to return to school after the half-term holiday, providing they are well.

Haxby Road is part of Ebor Academy Trust. Chief executive Gail Brown said: “We now have a remote teaching and learning policy in place, which you can see on our website, which explains how we will try and maintain education at home for pupils having to self-isolate.”
