Priory Ruskin Academy has confirmed that one of its Year 11 students tested positive for coronavirus and it has taken action as soon as possible, asking some students to self-isolate.

A spokesperson for the Priory Federation, which runs Priory Academy, said: "Following confirmation of a positive Covid-19 test result for a Year 11 student, the academy took all the appropriate steps advised by Lincolnshire’s health protection team.

"Close contacts, as defined under government guidelines, were notified that a period of self-isolation was necessary, with remote learning to resume for the duration.

"We remain extremely grateful for the understanding and co-operation shown by Ruskin’s parents and carers since the full reopening of the academy earlier this month."
