A school in Milton Keynes has alerted parents that a Year 11 student has tested positive for the virus.

The Hazeley Academy, in Emperor Drive, sent out the warning letter to parents yesterday (Tuesday, September 22), which said it is now working closely with Public Health England.

Principal Tony Nelson, who signed the letter, said a 'small number' of children that came into contact with the infected person are now self-isolating for 14 days.

He said: "We are reassured to hear that the family impacted are all safe and recovering, self-isolating at home. When we face challenges of this nature we pull together as a community. As always, parents can expect regular updates from Hazeley and gratitude for the support of our community."

More than 1500 students aged 11-18 go to the school, according to its website.
