One young child has sadly died while another is being treated in hospital after a rare bacteria outbreak in a primary school.

The child who died is understood to be a six-year-old who attended Ashford Church of England Primary School, who tragically succumbed to the invasive Group A streptococcal (iGAS) infection.

The other child affected also attended the school. Staff and pupils have been given antibiotics by specialists from the UK Health Security Agency. 

A third child from the same area of Ashford was also said to be suffering from Scarlet Fever, often caused by Strep Throat.

Letters advising of the Year 1 pupil's death were emailed to parents of the CoE school.
