Measles

There has been a recent rise in measles cases in the UK (February 2024). Measles is spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It can spread very easily.

You can protect your child by making sure they get 2 doses of the MMR vaccine. Normally the 1st is given at 12 months and the 2nd around 3 years 5 months old. Even if you or your children have missed these vaccines, it’s not too late to get them. Contact your GP practice today. 

If your child has had both doses of their MMR vaccine, there is almost no chance of them getting measles (unless they have a severely weakened immune system).

There is more information about the MMR vaccine and other childhood vaccinations on the West Yorkshire Healthier Together childhood vaccinations page.

Wiggle Day 23.2.24
21/02/2024 9:06 PM

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are looking forward to our annual Wiggle Event, taking place in school on Friday 23rd February 2024. 

We request a voluntary contribution of £1 towards this fundraising activity, which will raise money for the charity, Happy Days. Happy Days fund our annual visit to the pantomime at Wakefield Theatre Royal each Christmas, which we are very grateful for.

As part of the event, we will be hosting Chinese themed dance sessions, to mark the culmination of the Chinese New Year and have a variety of themed props to add to the enjoyment!

Students are welcome to wear something red on the day, if they so wish.

Thank you in anticipation of your support for this worthy cause.

Yours faithfully,

Chloe Brook, Sam Scott and Mel Taylor
