Update - 3rd June

Dear parents/carers

Update...

Earlier today, schools received a message from the Director of Education/LCC which indicates they are reviewing their decision on school re-opening on a weekly basis - see below...


Last week Dr Sakthi Karunanithi, our Director of Public Health, advised that schools and other early years settings that it was not yet safe in Lancashire to reopen to more children from Monday 1 June.

Dr Karunanithi will review his advice on Monday 8 June, and if it changes, schools will be encouraged to take the decision to reopen to more pupils from 15 June. If the advice does not change, the guidance will be reviewed again on 15 June.


Our school will follow LCC advice on this matter and continue with our current arrangements until LCC indicate that it is safe to open further. Although I still can't give you a firm date, we now know that the earliest we will open for wider groups of children will be 15th June. Their decision seems to hinge on the success of the track and trace system.


Dr Karunanithi's advice was based on the concern that two of the government's five tests were not being met in the county. Having reviewed the statistics which showed there had been an increase in confirmed positive cases of coronavirus at a time when the NHS Track and Trace system had launched, but was not fully operational, his professional opinion was that it was not yet safe for schools to open to more children.


I hope that this information is helpful to you.

Have a good evening.

Amanda
