Chat Health

The School Nursing service is very excited to be launching ChatHealth. This is an anonymous text messaging service for parents of 5 -19-year-old children. We will be able to offer parents/carers advice and support on many topics such as sleep, behaviour, parenting, healthy eating, bedwetting, emotional health & well-being, managing medical conditions. This service has been well received, and it has already been running in different parts of the UK.

Nasal Flu Immunisation

The School Immunisation Team will be visiting the school in November 2024 to administer the annual nasal flu immunisations to children in Years Reception, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6.

The vaccine is delivered in the form of a nasal spray, NOT via injection.

Your child’s annual flu vaccination is now due, and it is recommended to help protect your child against flu. We are contacting you to make you aware that your child is now eligible for their flu vaccination. This is something that we now offer to all children from Reception to Year 6 (and children with long-term health conditions that put them at greater risk from flu) as part of our winter vaccination programme. We ask that you complete our online consent form, whether you consent to your child being vaccinated or not. This allows us to monitor the uptake of vaccinations within your child’s school and the wider community — please see Parent mail for details.
