Ten Lincolnshire schools with confirmed COVID-19 cases

Since the start of the new term

Ten schools in Greater Lincolnshire have had positive cases of coronavirus since children returned to school this month.

Lincolnshire County Council confirmed there are currently six positive cases at schools in the county.

There have also been three confirmed cases at schools in North East Lincolnshire and at least one in North Lincolnshire.

This means a total of 10 confirmed cases of coronavirus at schools in Greater Lincolnshire.


Andy Fox, consultant in public health at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “As of Friday morning, Lincolnshire’s Health Protection Team is working with six schools that have had confirmed cases of coronavirus.

“All schools are taking the appropriate action, with some pupils and staff self-isolating as a precaution.”

Action for Children who run Spring Nursery at RAF Scampton confirmed one of the children tested positive for coronavirus.

The county council is not aware of any other confirmed cases at nurseries.

North East Lincolnshire

North East Lincolnshire Council said that since schools went back on September 3, there have been three confirmed cases in schools.

However, none of the schools have had to close.

A teacher at Cleethorpes Academy and a pupil at Stallingborough C of E Primary School tested positive for COVID-19.

A child in Year 6 at Lisle Marsden Church of England Primary Academy also tested positive.

North Lincolnshire

There has been at least one case in North Lincolnshire after a member of staff at St Lawrence Academy in Scunthorpe tested positive, but the school remains open.

The individual booked a test after being in contact with an infected person outside the academy a few days earlier before testing positive on Sunday.
