A further two coronavirus cases have been confirmed at a Northumberland school.
The new infections come within 24 hours of a staff member at St Benet Biscop Catholic Academy in Bedlington t esting positive.
In addition, a "small number of pupils" are now self-isolating after coming into direct contact with the confirmed cases.
In a letter to parents, headteacher Kevin Shepherd accepts parents will find the latest development "concerning".
"We are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England," he added.
The letter was sent to parents on Thursday, a day after it emerged two members of staff were self-isolating.

Can anyone shed some light on the work going on at the old elliots garage site? Someone told me that there is going to be a old folks home built there, then someone else told me that the planning permission for that fell through.
I have searched the council websites for info but they havent come up with much as yet.
If it is going to be a residential home, which company is it for? I can find the name of the building contractors but not the actual company who they are building it for ( if they are building anything at all!)
Any info would be very much appriciated.
Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?
I think it would be worth doing.
Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.
here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time
Has anyone got any updates regarding Tescos. It's gone very quiet. They have done exactly what everyone say they do buy up all the shops and then have the monopoly of the high street and then do nothing. Who is fighting for us at the moment or have we been forgotten. The Bedlington front street looks great at the moment with the new fronts been put on the shops but there are no decent shops now . No real reason to shop apart from food at Tescos which is exactly what they wanted.We are making do with a sub standard Morrisons and Tescos .
