The school issued a statement on its Facebook page yesterday titled “Urgent notice to all parents.”

It said: “We have been made aware of a year four pupil testing positive for Covid-19.

“A letter to all parents has been emailed to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child, should they develop symptoms.

“We know that you may find this concerning, but please be assured we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England (PHE) and our Health & Safety team.

It went on to conclude: “Thank you for your support and see you tomorrow.”

The Packet also contacted Cornwall Council for a statement and was referred to the school’s own statement on Facebook.
