  • Nasal Flu spray – now offered to all pupils in Reception-Year 11 from October to January.
  • The HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccination course: two vaccinations – each given at least six months apart. This offered to all pupils in the current Year 8 cohort.
  • The School Leaver boosters (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio and Meningitis ACWY) are offered to all children in the current academic Year 9.
  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) is offered to Year 9 children who may not be up to date with this.

If your child is unable to receive his or her immunisation due to absence or for another reason, a catch-up session will be arranged in school.
