Flu vaccination for children in Reception and Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 We would like to offer you the opportunity to protect your child against seasonal flu (influenza) this winter. Flu is a highly contagious viral infection affecting the respiratory system. This vaccine will protect all children from flu and its associated complications, such as pneumonia and middle ear infection. It will also help to reduce the spread of flu and thus protect many others, such as younger siblings, pregnant women, grandparents and those in “at risk” groups (i.e with conditions such as asthma, diabetes, kidney problems). 

From October 2017 all children in Reception and years 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be offered flu vaccination through a nasal spray. This extension of the national flu immunisation programme to children is part of a phased introduction, based on the advice of independent experts. This vaccination is annual so if your child received the vaccine last year they will need to have it again this year. 

Information can be obtained from www.nhs.uk/child-flu or contact your Immunisation Team. Fluenz Tetra® will be the vaccine used for children in this programme and one dose will be given nasally. The Patient information leaflet for the nasal flu can be found at: www.medicines.org.uk/emc/medicine/29109. 

Some schools have access to a flu video clip we have produced and may show this to the children before the session. Should you wish to view this video with your child it can be seen by visiting: https://youtu.be/9vEi0pdcH_w 

If your child becomes wheezy or has their asthma medication increased just before or on the day of the vaccination session, or you would just like some more advice or information please contact the vaccination team on 024 7696 1422 or email bewise.immunise@covwarkpt.nhs.uk


Whitley Abbey Primary Code Of Conduct

Our Values and Ethos Statement

ethos

 

Term Time Holiday

The Headteacher is not permitted to authorise holidays in term time unless it is in very exceptional circumstances. Each request is dealt with individually.

The school strives to have excellent attendance levels and unnecessary absence during term time can have a very damaging impact on a child's achievement. For this reason, parents who take their child on a term time holiday despite authorisation having been refused may, under some circumstances, incur a fixed penalty fine issued by the local authority.

Illness

If a child arrives at school feeling unwell, or becomes unwell during the course of the day, the parents will be contacted and the child should go home. As a general rule, children with a gastrointestinal illness (i.e. diarrhoea and vomiting) should remain off school for 48 hours after symptoms have stopped. For most other illnesses, children may return to school once they feel well enough to do so.

There are some exceptions to the 48 hour rule, so if you are unsure if your child can return, please contact the school for advice.

Medicines

If your child has to take prescribed medicines for a short term, treatments should be managed so that it is not necessary for medicines to come into school. Most medications can be managed by doses timed to be outside the school day.

However, if this is not possible, please discuss this with the Head Teacher, and complete a Parental Agreement form.

Medicines should be clearly labelled with the child's name and should be accompanied by written instructions.

All medicines are kept securely stored, with the exception of self-administered inhalers and insulin. Parents are discouraged from sending children to school with non-prescribed medication.

  Medical and Dental Appointments

Regular attendance in school ensures children maximise their potential and frequent appointments in school time cause disruption to their learning. We would appreciate it if parents could make every effort to make appointments outside school hours. If this is not possible, please ask for an Authorised Absence Form from the school office prior to the appointment. You may, in certain circumstances, be asked to provide evidence of this appointment in order for it to be authorised.
