I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and engagement at this challenging time. The health and welfare of each and every member of the school community is our primary concern. We aim to plan for as many eventualities as possible and we hope that in the event of significant impacts, such as a school closure, our parents and guardians will work with us as flexibly as possible to ensure the best possible outcomes for our pupils.
Due to the speed of updates we are currently receiving, we do recommend that parents and guardians also familiarise yourselves with the advice and guidance on the www.nhs.uk and www.gov.uk websites as well.
As you will be aware, due to Public Health England’s guidance on the Coronavirus outbreak, we have had to cancel all planned immunisation sessions within schools for the foreseeable future.
We are awaiting Public Health England guidance as to when these immunisation sessions will be rescheduled.
The immunisation sessions we have cancelled in your school affect those pupils in Year 9 (School Leaving Boosters) and the 2nd dose of HPV for all children in Year 8. We are unsure if PHE will want these immunisations to be caught up within this academic year or whether they may ask us to catch them up in the next academic year.
Please be assured that once we get direction from PHE regarding resuming these sessions, we will be back in touch to try and arrange a convenient date for you.
If you have any queries in the meantime, please get in touch with the team via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note that we are not taking telephone calls at this moment in time).
Chat Health and 0-19 Team
Please can I also remind you of the Chat Health service that is available for all young people who may have any worries about their physical, mental or emotional health. If you have any Young People that would like to use this texting service, please give them the details in the poster attached.
Also due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the 0-19 team are running a reduced service for families. Please also find an attached poster which shows what services are still currently running and available. If you have any queries for the 0-19 team, please call the Single Point of Access on 0113 843 5683.
With the developing situation regarding Covid-19, I have asked all Form Tutors/Classroom Teachers to show the below videos to their groups during Form Time in order to ensure that all students are able to wash their hands effectively and to reduce risk of transmission of all viruses.
What is social distancing? This video really helps children & adults understand:
The next video is more descriptive of what a virus is and what Coronavirus means to us:
