Pupils at primary and secondary schools across Leeds have been told to self-isolate due to cases of coronavirus.

When schools reopened to all children and young people in September, guidance was issued to schools to try and minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19 and outlining contingency plans in the case of a local outbreak.

Speaking on July 2, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson told the House of Commons: "It is critical to ensure that no child loses more time in education."

Schools were told to avoid large gatherings, such as assemblies, and to avoid singing in larger groups, such as school choirs and ensembles.

-> These are the new rules on face masks in Leeds schools as lockdown restrictions imposedThey were also advised to stagger break times, start and finish times, and to consider using “walking buses” to reduce the use of public transport.

This guidance also included keeping pupils in class or year-sized “bubbles”.

This means there is no mixing between the "bubble" groups in classrooms, corridors and other open areas.

It allows schools to easily identify those who may need to self-isolate if someone within the "bubble" tests positive for the virus

This means if a pupil tests positive in one "bubble", only that "bubble" will need to isolate and not the other "bubbles", limiting the impact on each year group.

Since schools reopened in Leeds, a number of "bubbles" have been affected by positive coronavirus cases.

Here is every Leeds school that has had confirmed Covid-19 cases:
