Dear Parents/Carers
 
On Wednesday 4th November, the Government produce a new piece of guidance in reference to people classed as clinically extremely vulnerable.
Children who were previously classed as extremely clinically vulnerable need to be aware of the following section:
 

More evidence has emerged that shows there is a very low risk of children becoming very unwell from COVID-19, even for children with existing health conditions. Most children originally identified as clinically extremely vulnerable no longer need to follow this advice. Speak to your GP or specialist clinician, if you have not already done so, to understand whether your child should still be classed as clinically extremely vulnerable.

Those children whose doctors have confirmed they are still clinically extremely vulnerable are advised not to attend school while this advice is in place. Your school will make appropriate arrangements for you to be able to continue your education at home. Children who live with someone who is clinically extremely vulnerable, but who are not clinically extremely vulnerable themselves, should still attend school.

If your son/daughter was previously identified as clinically extremely vulnerable then I would ask you to follow the above advice and make contact with either your GP or specialist clinician.  I will be updating all risk assessments accordingly and would appreciate you informing school of any such advice you receive.

 
If you have any concerns or questions about the guidance then please do not hesitate to make contact with me in school.
