NHS staff will visit the school on Thursday 1st November to carry out flu immunisations via nasal spray.  Consents have already been gathered.  Children with agreed consent will receive the nasal spray during the school day.  This has in the past been a very quick and straight forward process.

If your child is absent from school on the 2nd of November or has not yet started school please contact your GP surgery to make arrangements for them to receive this important annual immunisation.
