A number of students from Nailsea School are isolating following a confirmed case of Covid-19.
Students in year eight and a number of pupils in year nine who use the Long Ashton coach have been asked to isolate until September 25.
The case was confirmed yesterday (Wednesday) and letters were sent out to parents to inform them of the situation.
Headteacher Dee Elliott said: “The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is always at the forefront of everything we do here at Nailsea.
“It saddened me to have to make this decision. I do believe it was in the best interest of all concerned and we will ensure students will not be disadvantaged as a result.
