COVID19 BULLETIN – 8th June 2020

For Lancashire Schools

Message from Edwina Grant OBE

Executive Director Education and Children’s Services

I am writing to let you know that our Director of Public Health has reviewed his guidance that schools should not welcome more pupils and has determined that it should not change.

That means Dr Sakthi Karunanithi is advising that you should continue to delay reopening to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils. It is still the case that he believes two of the five government tests are not being met in the county.

Although the number of new cases has decreased, Lancashire and the North West has a high number of cases compared to many other regions in the country.

Similarly, although the weekly death count in Lancashire is showing a downward trend, a consistent decline is not being seen in all areas, and in recent weeks we have seen an increase. It has also been widely reported that the R value for the North West is above 1. Locally, all partners are working closely in the development of our local response to support Test and Trace.

Although some progress has been made, more work needs to be done to properly embed local expertise into the national NHS Test and Trace system.

Lancashire people have worked so hard throughout the pandemic in keeping the virus at bay. With various national lock down measures lifting, we need to remain vigilant in following social distancing rules to help prevent the infection spreading.

COVID19 bulletin for Lancashire Schools

Schools guidance on reopening for more pupils.

 

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.

As you know, the decision to welcome back more pupils to Lancashire's schools lies with head teachers, in consultation with their board of governors, taking into account their individual circumstances. We will work closely with you to provide advice and support. As has been the case throughout this emergency, all schools are encouraged to admit vulnerable pupils and those of key workers as long as their risk assessments suggest it is safe to do so.

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.

We are working closely with our local partners and the NHS and Public Health England to build a responsive and effective track and trace system for the benefit of not just our children, but all Lancashire people.

Our schools have been doing a brilliant job throughout this crisis to remain open to the children of key workers and vulnerable children. They have also been in regular contact with parents and pupils. Of course, we want to see children back in school as soon as possible. By keeping this advice under regular review, we can make sure this happens safely.
