Update on missed flu vaccinations Public Health England/ NHS  shall be texting all parents on Monday 17th January 2022, to advise that you can still book your child in for a flu vaccination. This is in response to recent media activity about health impacts of flu on children. The text will direct parents to contact 119 service should you have missed the flu sessions in schools.  Intrahealth is commissioned by Public Health to deliver the School flu immunisation programme. Their team has prepared external clinic catch up sessions to deliver additional flu vaccines within the LEA, outside of School hours. Please note that parents can contact the Intrahealth flu vaccination team on the email below to book in appointments this month. (Ideally giving school name/borough and a contact number in the email) gmschoolflu@intrahealth.co.uk 

January 17th, 2022 Update on missed flu vaccinations Public Health England/ NHS  shall be texting all parents on Monday 17th January ...

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have received communication from Trafford Public Health regarding an update to their guidance for schools. I would ask that you read the information below and then the resulting actions following this:

 

In response to Trafford having the third highest Covid rates across Greater Manchester with increasing cases in 5-15 year olds, children and young people aged between the ages of 5 and 16, should now be advised to stay at home when a sibling or household member tests positive for COVID-19 (via either a PCR or Lateral Flow test).

On day 2/3 following the onset of symptoms in the household (or test date if the positive case had no symptoms), the close contact child should get a PCR test. If this is negative, they can return to the setting, but should isolate again immediately and get another test if they develop symptoms of COVID-19 at a later date. If they are of secondary school age, following a negative PCR test they should take a daily LFD test prior to attending school for 10 days from the initial onset of symptoms in a household member..

Any parents or carers who still want their child to continue to attend school have the right to send their child into the setting. In these situations, we strongly advise the precautions as described above should be taken but we recognise that this cannot be enforced.

 

As a result of this, St Matthew's are requesting that families take the following actions if someone in the household tests positive via PCR or LFD:

  • Child in the household stays at home and parents/carers inform school as soon as possible.
  • 2-3 days after the onset of symptoms in the household, or after a positive test result if asymptomatic, child takes a PCR test.
  • On receipt of a negative result, inform school this is the case and child returns to school. If positive, child continues isolating for 10 days starting the day after the result or onset of symptoms.
  • If child has returned to school but then develops symptoms, child immediately isolates again and gets another PCR test. Inform school of result - if positive, continue isolating for 10 days starting the day after the onset of symptoms. If negative, child returns to school.

As shared in Trafford's guidance, this is a request and cannot be enforced by school. However, we would strongly advise that these actions are followed to keep everyone in our school as safe as possible. 

If you or anyone in your household develops symptoms and would like further guidance about these actions, please contact school at the earliest opportunity and we would be happy to help.

Kind regards,

Mr Langridge
