Since the start of term 79 schools across the city have been affected by coronavirus by either partially closing, announcing cases or asking pupils to self isolate.
In some cases, the closures only apply to certain year groups or class group, depending on where the reported coronavirus is found.
While some asked year groups or bubbles to isolate at home, others decided to close for a deep clean.
