A “bubble” of 40 children are isolating at home until mid-October after a fellow pupil tested positive for coronavirus.
Langley Independent School, based in Taverham and Loddon, has seen a single asymptomatic Covid-19 case, confirmed on September 28.
Marketing director Jon Kempton said: “We are aware that other schools have already dealt with such circumstances, and if there was ever a case of us all being in this together - then this is it.
“We have taken swift action to inform parents, pupils, students and staff who have come into contact with the individual pupil - through teaching or within their bubble.
“This is the smallest cohort in school, with some 40 pupils having been affected.”
