School Flu Vaccinations 2021

It’s that time of year again when the NHS Immunisation Service offers nasal spray vaccinations for children in school.

The Immunisation Service are coming into school on 13/10/2021 to offer your child the Flu vaccination.

Please see below a parent letter with instructions on how to complete the online consent form, to either consent or refuse this course of vaccinations.***

***Please note there is a cut off time and date for consent completion, which can be found in the letter. This also contains important information on the vaccines and frequently asked questions, to help you and your child reach an informed decision regarding consent.

The online consent form is available for completion until 11am five working days before the session date above. If you have any difficulties completing this online form, please contact your local Immunisation team before the cut-off date, using the telephone number provided in the letter. 

If you miss the cut off time to complete the consent form, the Immunisation team will be unable to vaccinate your child in school on the day of the vaccination session. The consent form will reopen one working day after the session, enabling you to submit a form for your child to be offered the vaccination at a later date, within one of our catch up clinics.

If your child is in Reception to Year 6 please read the following publication with your child: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/999276/PHE_protecting_your_child_against_flu_leaflet_information_for_parents.pdf

Christmas 2020 at Westfield

Whilst, this Christmas, things have been a little different to usual, we have still managed to do some Christmas activities with the children which we can share with you.

Reception have done a nativity which they have recorded for Reception parents. Hopefully, we’ll be able to share some snapshots once the full video has been edited.

Deck the halls

All classes have made Christmas decorations which have been hung on festive hoops in the corridors. Wandering through the school has truly felt like walking through a Christmas Wonderland.

Christmas time is coming!

As Year 5 & 6 couldn’t perform their traditional carol concert to parents this year, we have taken their performance online! Thanks to Miss Mitchell for all her hard work in putting this wonderful concert together.

The leaning tree of Westfield

A huge thank you to Littledown Christmas Tree Farm for their kind donation of a Christmas Tree for our playground.

Celebrate!

You will all be aware of the new reading program we started, Accelerated Reader. In KS1, children get a raffle ticket for reading 5 times a week. In KS2 children get a raffle ticket every time they pass a quiz after reading a book.

Raffle tickets have been collected over the term and today the draw was made!

10 children in total won prizes, 5 in KS1 and 5 in KS2.

A huge congratulations to Jessalyn in Year 5 and Charlie in Year 2 for winning an Amazon Kindle each!

Don’t worry if you didn’t win this time around! There will be another chance to win an Amazon Kindle at Easter!
