A pupil at Stallingborough CofE Primary School in Grimsby has tested positive for Covid-19, it has been confirmed.

Parents received an email from Head Teacher Mrs Hepworth, confirming the situation this morning.

Pupils in the affected class have been instructed to isolate for 14 days.

According to the message, “a deep clean has been undertaken” in classrooms and communal areas used by the class, and government guidelines are being followed.

Stallingborough CofE Primary School has remained open for all other pupils.

Schools across England reopened last week having implemented new social distancing and safety measures such as one-way systems and enhanced cleaning schedules.

Pupils have also been placed in social bubbles.

North East Lincolnshire Council have issued a notice to parents across the borough, urging them to consider their actions and help reduce the spread of coronavirus.

Speaking this morning, Councillor Ian Lindley said:

“We’ve seen reports of parents gathering at school gates around the region waiting for their children.

“I know that this is an exciting time for parents and children, with many youngsters starting primary and secondary school for the first time, but I would urge parents to always be mindful of the COVID-19 guidance and work with the Council and schools to keep everyone safe.

“We have done a lot of work with schools locally to make sure that your children are safe in their schools and that the risk of the virus spreading in those settings is absolutely minimal.

“It would be a shame if this work was wasted by parents and older relatives crowding outside school gates without proper considerations.

“Please do your bit to help keep children in school and keep schools open.”
