Dear Parents and Carers,
RE: government updates to Covid restrictions.
On the 1 April the government updated its next steps for living with Covid-19 guidance, with the current status of population being much stronger protected against CV19 than at any other point in the pandemic. The living with CV19 means that we must manage the virus like other respiratory infections, and for that reason regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any educational setting, including SEND. To coincide with these changes to restrictions the NHS have published the following:
The main changes are summarised below:
·Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home to avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school when they no longer have a high temperature and they feel well enough to attend. For children and young people aged 18 and younger with a positive case should stay at home and avoid other people for 3 days
·Adults with symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell should try and stay at home to avoid contact with people until they feel better to resume their normal activities and that they no longer have a high temperature. Adults with a positive Covid-19 test result should stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days
Children aged 12 to 15 are still able to access the vaccine outside of school at locations such as walk-in centres and pharmacies. Healthy 5 to 11 year olds are currently being offered the covid-19 vaccine and this will take place outside of school at walk-in centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies and parents of 5 to 11 year olds will receive a letter from the NHS with the details and further information.
