Your child is due to be in Reception to Year 6 from September 2020 and they are therefore eligible for a Free Nasal Childhood Flu Vaccination.
It is anticipated that this will be delivered in schools between October 2020 to December 2020, this will be administered adhering to all up to date Infection Control, PPE and social distancing guidance at the time.
Flu vaccination is one of most effective interventions we have to reduce pressure on the health and social care system which is going to be more important than ever this year. For this reason, it is essential we deliver the vaccine to as many children as possible to prevent the spread of infection to those most at risk in society.
In light of the above we are expecting demand to be high and therefore we urge you to follow the below link to consent to your child’s vaccination now. You will also find answers to your FAQ’s on this link.
If you have any difficulties with completing the consent form please contact the Immunisation Team on our Single Point of Access (SPA).

Are you a parent/carer of a child with SEND?
This term we are re-launching our SEND Parent/Carer coffee mornings. These will take place in our new Well-Being Centre and will take the form of a relaxed, informal support group run by parents, for parents. They will be run by Lucy Simoncsics, a parent herself, who also has experience of working at Koalas SEND Pre-School and as a volunteer with Swindon Advocacy Movement. Mrs Smith (formally Mrs Clegg) will also be on-hand for advice and support if needed. Mr Williams is the SEND Governor.
Our first group will be on Thursday 12th December at 9am (we'll provide the mince pies!).
We look forward to seeing you there.
