Poppy Appeal

5 Nov 2022

The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, during the period of Remembrance. Monies raised from the sale of poppies provides support and assistance for all those servicemen and women who have been injured in active service or for families of those who have lost their lives. In school we will be teaching the children the importance of ‘remembering’ and how this impacts on our world today.

If you wish to support this important national event, you will be able to buy a poppy from the playground next week. All proceeds will be donated to the Royal British Legion Annual Appeal and our Year 6 pupils will be selling poppies on behalf of the Poppy Appeal.

Polio vaccine

5 Oct 2022

The risk is low, but it is very important to make sure your child is up-to-date with all their vaccinations, including polio.

Check your child’s red book or contact your GP if you don’t think your child has had them. Find out more about which vaccines are given to children on the NHS website. 

The booster dose will be given to children that are up-to-date with their routine vaccinations. If they are not, they will be offered the next poliovirus vaccine in their schedule.

The vaccine will be given to them through GP practices and other local providers, not schools, who will contact parents and carers when they are ready for them to come forward.

The flu vaccine will be given at our school on Thursday 20th October, please ensure you have completed the consent form by Wednesday 19th October at the very latest.
