School immunisation Programme
Immunisation helps protect our young people and communities from a wide range of illnesses.
The NHS Lothian Community Vaccination Team carries out an annual immunisation programme, which includes:
 
• The HPV vaccine for girls in S1 and S2 to protect against cervical cancer (and also for any girls in S3-S6 who have not completed)

• If you receive a consent form pack please ensure you read this and discuss it at home. Please make sure the form is returned as soon as possible (within 7 days please), signed by both child and parent.


Library - Lunchtimes
From Monday 12th March - Thursday 29th March the library lunchtime sessions will be for study only. This is to allow S4-S6 pupils to study, finish folio pieces. Any S1-3 pupils who need to use PC's for homework, should speak to Mrs Brown.

Pupils who have Prescribed Medication in School
If your child has prescribed medication in School, it is imperative that you keep this medication up to date.  Letters have been sent home and to date there are still nine pupils who have out of date medication.  If your child requires this medication in an emergency, then we cannot give it.  I would be grateful if Parent/Carers who have received these letters would hand in the medication ASAP.  If you child no longer requires medication, you must inform the school in writing.
Mrs Fraser (Welfare)



Pupils who have Non-Prescribed Medication in School
If your child has non-prescribed medication in School, I have sent letters home via the pupils.  I would be grateful if you could complete the forms and return to School ASAP.  We cannot administer any medication without the completion of these forms.
