Message from Public Health England

 

There is currently a measles outbreak in Greater Manchester that we have been involved in managing and we and trying to promote the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccination across all communities for all ages.

Measles is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus that can lead to serious complications such as liver infection (hepatitis), squints in the eyes, infection of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) or infection of the brain itself (encephalitis).

Complications of measles are more likely to develop in certain groups of people. These include:
• Babies younger than 1 year old
• Children with a poor diet
• Children with a weakened immune system (such as those with leukaemia)
• Teenagers and adults

If you're not immune to measles and become infected while you're pregnant, there can be a risk to the baby

You can protect yourself and your family by having 2 doses of the MMR vaccine which is safe and effective. The MMR vaccine is not just for children, it can be given to adults too. More than one in three measles cases are hospitalised and the risk increases to more than 50% in adults over 25 years.

If you, your staff or students are unsure whether you/ they have had 2 MMR vaccinations, please contact your GP practice to check your vaccination history and they will be able to recommend MMR vaccination if needed.

Measles is circulating in Greater Manchester

It would be impossible to list all of the interesting & exciting things happening here at school but this page aims to give visitors a flavour of the range of events the children experience. You may also be intersted in visiting the 'Celebrations Page' which can be found by clicking on 'Welcome' from the home page. 

We received a lovely letter (below) from Ivan Lewis MP to congratulate us on our KS2 results in 2018.

The children and staff enjoyed taking part in The Great Kindness Challenge 2019. This is a global initiative to promote kindness across the world. The children took part in a range of activities including assemblies, making kindness chains and completing kindness challenges such as ‘smiling at 25 people’, ‘learning something new about their teachers’, ‘saying prayers for children in different countries’ and ‘sitting with someone new at lunch time’. It has been great to see everyone at school pulling together to make Kindness Week such a huge success!
