Alford Primary, which was already on the list, has now changed to being listed as closed. Great Steeping Primary School in Spilsby also remains on the list, but is no longer closed, as it reopened this week.

Mr Lidbury, who is the headteacher, told The Lincolnite that everybody is back in school as the bubbles self-isolating returned on Monday, November 23.

Andy Fox, consultant in public health, said: “As of this Thursday, Lincolnshire’s Health Protection Team is currently working with 135 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.
