Vaccinations against Diphtheria, Tetanus & Polio & MenACWY
Your son/daughter will be bringing home a consent form and leaflets from the School Health Service regarding the routine vaccinations that take place normally during Year 9. If your son or daughter is in years 10 or 11 then you will have received this due to records showing that your child has not yet received these vaccinations. The two vaccinations are: the 3 in 1 teenage booster for Diphtheria, Tetanus & Polio, and Meningitis (MenACWY). Both vaccinations will take place in school on Friday 26th January 2018.
Whether you wish, or do not wish, for your child to receive these vaccinations, please sign and date both signature boxes as appropriate on the of the form and return to your child’s Form Tutor by Wednesday 17th January 2018 at the latest.
Any students who do not provide a correctly signed consent form may need to make alternative arrangements via their GP to receive these vaccinations. This decision will be made by the School Health Team who will contact parents directly in this instance.
