Several hundred children in year groups at senior and primary schools in Bridlington have had their last days of the school summer term cancelled and been asked to stay at home and self isolate due to a spike in positive Covid -19 tests.
Bridlington and Headlands secondary schools currently have several school years affected and students have been asked to self-isolate.
Burlington Junior school has a Year 6 bubble isolating at the moment and Quay Academy have had Year 5 pupils isolating until midnight this Friday (16th July). Year 2 youngsters from Quay Academy return to school on Tuesday 20th. A class from Year 4 will also return on Tuesday 20th.
A class in Year 4 at Martongate was also sent home today.
The Echo understands from parents that several schools in the town and nearby villages have year groups and class bubbles sent home and placed under self-isolation.
One parent who has a youngster at a junior school in the town, said: “It’s been an incredibly tough school year, but the children and school staff have been brilliant under the difficult circumstances.”
We are awaiting a statement from ERYC regarding the situation.
