This academic year, students in year 11 are being offered the Men ACWY vaccination through a one-off catch up programme to ensure that they are protected before they leave secondary education. This is due to the significant increase of the numbers of Meningitis cases. The linked letter contains information about the disease and the choices that pupils have regarding the vaccination, which they should discuss with their parents/carers.
A drop-in clinic has been set up in the library on Monday, 13 June 2016, between 9.15 am and 12.30 pm, when students will be offered the Men ACWY vaccination and be asked to complete a consent form.
If parents/carers do not wish their child to be offered this vaccination, please complete the opt-out slip attached to the information letter, and return to student services or the KS3 office no later than Monday 16th May 2016.
