Booster vaccine information:


 “The NHS is having to work at extreme pace to respond to this new variant and to put in place the next and most complex phase of the successful Covid-19 vaccination programme.


 “Following updated guidance from JCVI, the NHS will shortly set out how staff will expand the booster programme – this will include how booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people are protected first, while also increasing capacity to vaccinate millions more people in a shorter space of time.


 “The NHS will contact you when you are due to book in for your lifesaving booster vaccination, and when you get the call, it’s vital that people come forward as quickly as possible.”

Helpful Information

Mental Health and School Attendance

Would you please be able to share the below messaging on your website and/ or social media to help awareness of the link between poor mental health and poor school attendance (there is an image attached as well if you wish to use it):

Did you know that poor mental health has been linked to poor school attendance? Anxiety is often described as a key risk factor.

School plays a key role in a child’s development, and frequent absence from school increases the likelihood of a range of adverse outcomes in childhood and later life.

If you think your child is missing school due to their poor mental health or for any other reason then it's important to let their school know. Schools and colleges can work with your child to set attendance and achievement goals, and also develop a realistic plan for improving attendance. They can also help your child to access mental health support services if they need it.

Research has shown a clear link between being absent from school and academic success so make sure you reach out to your child’s school if you have any concerns.
