SOME pupils have been told to stay away from school for two weeks after a staff member caught coronavirus.
A catering team worker at Bramley Sunnyside Primary School tested positive for the virus last week - just days after the school reopened following five months off-limits.
Head Laura Robson said in a letter to parents that any child who had eaten a hot meal at the school last Thursday should self-isolate for 14 days.
The Monday morning breakfast club was scrapped as deep cleaning was taking place.
Explaining the demand for children to stay off school, Ms Robson said: “While there is a plastic screen between the kitchen staff and the children, they are considered as having had contact with the staff member who has tested positive.”
She added: “I know that you will all join me in wishing this member of staff the best for her recovery as well as hoping that no-one else develops symptoms.”
