Community Vaccination Team

Teenage Booster and Meningitis ACWY Vaccinations

Consent packs for vaccinations from NHS Lothian are out now for pupils in S3 (and in S4 – S6 who have not yet received their vaccinations).

Every year, pupils in S3 are offered the Teenage booster  to complete their life long protection, through routine immunisations, against tetanus, diphtheria and polio.   Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

In addition to the Teenage Booster vaccination, all S3 pupils are recommended to have a meningitis vaccine (ACWY).  This protects against several strains including the W strain of meningitis which is on the increase across the UK.  Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

Please read the letter, discuss the vaccinations and return completed and signed consent forms to school by Friday 10th February 2017.

Information Meeting (S3)

Dear Parent/Carer

As you are aware, S3 pupils will soon be making subject choices for S4.

To help you gain an understanding of the process, we would like to invite you to attend an Information Evening on Wednesday 1 February at 7.00pm in the Drama Studio. We will talk you through how the process works in school and how we can work together to create the best possible package for each pupil. Please note that the course options will not be available at this point.

Yours sincerely

Lisa Coffey, Depute Headteacher
