A PRIMARY school has told parents that children in Year 1 and 2 should stay at home. 

This comes after a pupil at Cross in Hand Church Of England Primary School, near Heathfield, tested positive for coronavirus.

In an email seen by The Argus, the school said that "the child affected is in the school's Key Stage 1 bubble (Year 1 and Year 2 pupils)".
