Immumisations for Y8 & Y9 students

“Immunisation delivery in schools was suspended in March due to the COVID 19 outbreak. Sefton  Immunisation Teams has now been given the go ahead by NHS England to recommence delivery of vaccinations. Year 8 and Year 9 were affected by the lockdown.

The recovery has now started.

Parents from year 9 pupils who have previously returned a consent form are currently being contacted by Sefton Immunisation Team inviting students to attend school to receive their missed vaccinations and have been asked to attend at a specified time to enable the service to be delivered in a safe way adhering to government guidance.

For students who have not retuned a consent form, please be assured your child will be put on a catch up programme from September throughout the next academic school year.

If you have any queries, please contact Sefton Immunisation Team on 0151 247 6130”.

Kooth online

Here’s a video that explains Kooth in nutshell https://vimeo.com/318731977 

Kooth is a free, safe and anonymous online support and counselling service and has already been commissioned in Sefton for young people aged 11-25.  Many of the issues young people are talking to us about at the moment include school worries, bereavement, Covid19 and sleep issues which are directly related to these unprecedented times.  Kooth is still available to you if you need any support both now and during the summer holidays. 

Medicine in Action online event

Medicine in Action online – July 3rd, 11.00 – 15.00, £12 per ticket.

LIVE STREAMED EVENT

We are delighted to announce a new online event for aspiring medics on July 3rd 2020. Medicine in Action is a specially designed programme where students will hear from medics from a wide range of specialities and at various stages in their careers. We will discover the life of a doctor, uncover the incredible scientific and technological breakthroughs enabling transformation of healthcare and discuss the ethical and societal issues that the next generation of medics will encounter.

https://thetrainingpartnership.org.uk/study-day/medicine-in-action-online-3-07-2020/

We are aware that there is a cost but as this is a one off event and includes a speaker from Alder Hay Children’s Hospital, we thought this was worth advertising should you have any sixth-form/year 11 students who are interested in medicine.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Anna Webb on: (anna@thetrainingpartnership.org.uk)

Students returning to school using public transport

Message from Merseytravel to all Parents/Carers

With some pupil cohorts returning to school and travelling on the public transport network we would like to advise and confirm that all pupils over the age of 10 years old should be wearing a face covering on their bus journeys to and from school in line with  the Government Guidance. The only exception to this is for individuals with medical exemptions.

Merseytravel would like to raise awareness and help enforce this mandatory Government requirement.

Thank you for your co-operation

The staff from across the school ran, cycled or walked over 3,000 miles during the 10 day challenge raising over £1,000 for Jospice. A great achievement by everyone whilst raising some much needed funds for our local hospice.

Well done to everyone to took part and big thanks to Mr Hynes for organising the challenge.
