Hundreds of children are now self-isolating across the region as more and more coronavirus cases are reported among pupils and staff at both schools and colleges.
The rise in cases comes after schools re-opened to all pupils for the first time since lockdown on Tuesday, September 8.
Within the first week back, Bishop Burton College near Beverley was informed by a staff member they had tested positive for the virus.
On the first day of the second week back to school on Monday, September 14, Quay Academy in Bridlington was the first primary school to report a case, which prompted a full year group being sent home.
The following day, Wolfreton School and Sixth Form College became the first secondary school to confirm a case which saw 271 pupils enter isolation for 14 days.
Whilst schools and colleges have assured Hull Live they are doing everything they can to make their settings covid-19 secure since reopening fully, nowhere is exempt from the possibility of an outbreak.
The rise in the latest cases come after just three reported cases in education settings in our area before schools fully re-opened. The first coronavirus case reported in our region iwas back in March, at Hunsley Primary School in Brough.
This was followed by another two cases during lockdown – when schools were only open to key-worker children- both at Swanland Primary School in June at at Alderman Cogan Church of England Primary Academy in July.
