Mudeford Junior School Covid Update

Advice to all Parents

 

Dear Parents and Carers

We have been advised by Public Health England (PHE) that there has been a second confirmed adult case of COVID-19 in Year 3 at Mudeford Junior School.

 

The second adult confirmed case of COVID 19 was last in school on Tuesday 8 September.  Following PHE guidance and because of the successful implementation of self-isolation guidance no other members of our school community have been impacted by this further case.  All the necessary contacts have been asked to self- isolate for 14 days from 8 September.  As a result of the precautionary measures taken, both Year 3 classes will still be returning to school on Wednesday 23 September.

 

Due to our school’s comprehensive risk assessment for COVID 19 and the bubble system we have put in place, there has been no further disruption to the operation of the school.

The school remains open and, providing your child is well, they can continue to attend school as normal.

 

We are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England and BCP Council to ensure all the necessary measures are in place to keep our school safe.  I would like to thank you all for your help and patience in these challenging times.

 

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

If your child develops symptoms of COVID 19, you should organise for your child to be tested via the NHS online portal or by calling 119.  Your household should isolate until you receive the test results giving the all clear.

How to stop COVID 19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID 19

Do:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
