Another Norfolk school has confirmed that it has had a case of coronavirus.

Litcham School sent a letter to parents on Monday stating that there had been a confirmed case of Covid-19 “within the setting”.

The school said it was working closely with Public Health England and was continuing to be vigilant for other cases.

The letter stated: “The setting remains open and providing your child remains well, they can continue to attend as normal.”

The school said it was keeping that under review and gave advice over self-isolation.
