This afternoon, a statement on the school's official Facebook page read: "As a precautionary measure, due to two confirmed cases of coronavirus, we are requesting that children in Curlew and Kittiwake (bubbles) do not attend school tomorrow, Thursday 17th, and Friday 18th September.

"We are awaiting further guidance from Public Health Lincolnshire as to what further measures need to be taken, and we will update you as soon as possible.

"Work has been sent home with the children in those two classes. Children in other classes are still expected in school tomorrow as normal."

This latest news comes just one day after John Spendluffe Technology College, Alford, requested that all Year 7 and Year 10 students - plus any student who travels on the Hunts 7 bus - should stay off school for the rest of the week, due to what the school described as a "serious Covid-19 concern" affecting those groups.
