The Elizabeth Woodville School, in Deanshanger, has told the two year groups they must work remotely from home for the remainder of this week.

Head teacher Sharan Matharu said in a statement: "There are a number of teachers self-isolating, largely as a result of having been notified to do so through track and trace. However, some staff are having to self-isolate due to family members having symptoms or their own children being sent home from their primary schools."

The school said that across both its north and south sites it has had a total of 15 positive cases of Covid-19.
