Covid19 update – Friday 1st April
Thank you to everyone who has been following our enhanced control measures over the past two weeks. As you are probably aware, as of today, the national testing programme for Covid has come to an end. However, due to the high number of cases still affecting us at Milford, to minimise disruption to the children’s education and everyone’s Easter holidays, we have been advised to continue with our enhanced measures until the end of term.
We are pleased to let you know that public health have advised we can continue with our Easter bonnet parades on Friday 8th as they are taking place outside, so are low risk. We would like to suggest that all adults wear a face covering and do not attend if you have any Covid symptoms.
Timings are as follows: 2.15pm - Year 2, 2.30pm - Year 1, 2.45pm - Reception and Pre-School
From today, the following guidance applies to children with symptoms of a respiratory infection:
Children with mild, respiratory symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or slight cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend school or pre-school.
Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people. They can go return to school/pre-school when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough.
If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day, they took the test. The risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower after 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature.
Children and young people who live with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result should continue to attend as normal.
Thank you for your continued understanding and support.
