EU Exit Preparations

Please ensure that you and your staff are familiar with the DfE guidance available online at
Lord Agnew (Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System) issued a letter to Directors of Children’s Services requesting that it is shared with state schools. Read the ‘Guidance for schools on leaving the EU’ letter online.

Vaccinations for Year 13 students


The NHS has asked that schools with sixth forms share information with parents and carers  about checking Year 13 students (2017/18 academic year) are up to date with their vaccinations.

It is important that young people are fully protected against key diseases, including measles (with the MMR vaccine) and meningitis (with the MenACWY vaccine), not just when they are at school and in contact with many other young people but also as they break up for the summer and may get exposed to infections during their travels, visits to festivals and holidays.

Please find attached an explanatory letter to headteachers asking to cascade the attached parent/carer letter and student slip via the usual methods.
