An academy on the Isle of Sheppey has confirmed a case of Covid-19 just one month after a previous case.
A Year 7 pupil at The Oasis Academy, Minster Road, Sheerness, contracted the virus this week which has forced the year group bubble into self-isolation for two weeks.
A spokesman revealed teachers will be supporting pupils while they continue their learning at home after the school was informed by Public Health England about the coronavirus case.
Last month 50 pupils at the academy were told to isolate after a pupil tested positive for the virus.
A letter sent to parents at the time said: "As you know, we have put extensive measures in place to ensure our students and staff are as safe as possible as we have welcomed our young people back to the school.
"This is an isolated individual case in a year group bubble, so please don't be alarmed, but it is a reminder we all need to remain vigilant, both in school and the wider community."
It is the third school in the past two days which has been hit by at least one confirmed Covid-19 case.
