Pupils bring in completed health assessment forms every day, and contingency plans are in place if a child or teacher were to show signs of the virus.

Mrs Towns said planning would be needed to help pupils catch up, and that clarity was still lacking on how the September term would look.

“A one-metre social distancing rule would help,” she said.

“Other options include looking at public buildings nearby.”

She added: “But I’m just glad to be back and see the children.”
