Another Hampshire school has confirmed a positive case of coronavirus.

Wildern School in Hedge End has informed parents that a year 10 student has returned the positive test and will now have to isolate as a result.

Parents of the 'small number' of children who have been in close contact with the pupil have received a letter informing them that their child must also isolate for 14 days.

The school, which has over 1900 students, is said to be working closely with Public Health England in relation to the case.

In a letter to parents, headteacher, Mrs C Oakley said: "We know that you may find this concerning, but we are continuing to monitor the situation.

"Please be reassured that for most people coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

"The school remains open and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well."
