A year group at a Doncaster primary school has been told to self-isolate after a member of staff came into direct contact with a coronavirus case.

Public Health has advised the closure of the Year One unit at the West Road Primary Academy where students will remain home for the next 14 days. The school says it will remain open despite this.

Parents should ring NHS 111 for more information. Current guidance is that Year 1 will be closed for 14 days, but we will keep you informed via the website and text if the situation changes. The rest of the school remains open as usual. Thank you for your co-operation.
