We have received the following letter from Surrey County Council.
At this time we have no reported cases of Group A Strep (or Scarlet Fever) in the school.
Scarlet fever is usually a mild illness, but it is very infectious. Look out for symptoms in your child, which include a sore throat, headache, and fever, along with a fine, pinkish or red body rash with a sandpapery feel. On darker skin, the rash can be more difficult to detect visually but will have a sandpapery feel. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/scarlet-fever/
Updated Covid guidance
If your child tests positive for COVID-19 they should stay at home for 3 days following their positive test.
If they have, or subsequently develop symptoms, they should also wait until they are well.
After 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature, the risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower and they can return to nursery/school as normal.
