Nine more schools with COVID-19 cases on Monday

One nursery added to the list too

A further nine Lincolnshire schools and one nursery have positive cases of coronavirus on Monday.

Lincolnshire County Council said on November 16 that it is working with 90 schools and 10 nurseries with COVID-19 infections.

The latest additions to the county council’s list are Marking Deeping Community Primary School, St Hugh’s Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy (Lincoln), Stamford Junior School, Belton Lane Primary School (Grantham), Greenfields Academy (Grantham), North Thoresby Primary Academy, The Priory School (Spalding), Washingborough Academy, Theddlethorpe Academy. Of those, Greenfields Academy is listed as closed.

Limes Play and Learn in Louth is the latest nursery to be added to the list.

John Spendluffe Technology College in Alford has at least three positive cases of coronavirus and announced that it will temporarily close for a week from November 16.

De Aston School in Market Rasen, which is already on the council’s list, announced on Sunday that a student in Year 10, who was last in school on November 13, has tested positive for coronavirus.

The positive result came back on November 15 and all Year 10 students have been asked to self-isolate until the end of Friday, November 27.

A letter to parents from headteacher Simon Porter said that the Year 10 student travelled on the Cherry Willingham bus to Wragby last week, but that Public Health guidance advised that only her close contacts on the bus have to isolate, who are all within the Year 10 bubble.

Meanwhile, the Lincolnshire schools currently listed as closed are King Edward VI Grammar (Louth), St Lawrence School (Horncastle), Holton Le Clay Pre-School, Newton on Trent Primary School (Lincoln), John Spendluffe Technology College (Alford), and Greenfields Academy (Grantham).

Andy Fox, consultant in public health, said: “As of this Monday, Lincolnshire’s Health Protection Team is currently working with 90 schools that have had confirmed cases of coronavirus.

“All schools are taking action to limit the potential spread of the virus, with some pupils and staff self-isolating as a precaution where necessary.

“The majority of schools remain fully open, and those affected are working really well to limit both the risk of the virus spreading and the impact on the pupils’ education.”
