A north Norfolk high school has confirmed one of its pupils has coronavirus.

Aylsham High School’s headteacher, Duncan Spalding, sent a letter to parents and carers on October 20 to let them know, and offer advice on self-isolating if anyone in their household started to show symptoms.

The school has not provided details on how many students have been asked to stay home.

Mr Spalding’s letter, sent via email, read: “We have been advised that there has been a confirmed case of Covid-19 within the setting.

“We will be working closely with Public Health England and continue to be vigilant for any other cases.
