A school in Andover has confirmed a coronavirus case in the last week.

Pilgrims Cross CofE Aided Primary School, on Picket Twenty Way, confirmed to Hampshire County Council that the virus was present in the school on November 4.

Headteacher of Pilgrims Cross CofE, Jon LeFevre, told the Advertiser: "I can confirm a positive case of COVID within the school community, however, it was contracted from outside of the school.

“There has been no impact on the school due to the half term break. I would like to thank all the parents for their support and my staff for all their hard work at this time!"

The school follows a number of others across Test Valley that have confirmed positive coronavirus tests in recent weeks.

Abbotts Ann Primary School confirmed a case on October 29, following similar reports to Hampshire County Council by Portway Junior School on October 22, Test Valley School on October 20 and Icknield School and Norman Gate School on Monday, October 19.

Over the past week, cases in Test Valley have risen again following a dip. On November 1, eight cases were confirmed in the borough, reaching 27 by November 3. Positive test results then fell to just two on November 6, with the latest figures giving 18 cases reported on Saturday, November 7.

This brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Test Valley to 1,159 since the beginning of the pandemic.
