Please see our calendar for all our term dates. There will be a non-uniform day on Thursday 18th November in aid of Children in Need.
Covid 12-15 Vaccinations Catch-up Clinics
Please see message below from the Schools' Vaccination Team:
Did your child miss their chance to have their COVID-19 vaccination in school?
Please note if your child has tested positive for COVID-19 they need to wait 4 weeks before they can have a COVID-19 vaccine.
Sheffield Children’s Hospital Vaccination and Immunisation Team has been making visits to schools from 24th September to offer the COVID vaccine for children age 12 to 15 years old, and will continue to do this after the half-term holiday. Please check with your school if you are unsure whether we have visited already.
We are aware that some young people may have been absent from school when our team visited, and if this is the case they can also drop-in to one of our half-term clinics below:
- Becton Centre, S20 1NZ - 25 October to 29 October – 9.30am to 3.30pm
- St Columba’s Church, S10 5PL - 25 October – 9.30am to 3.30pm
- SOAR/ LEARNING ZONE S5 8NL -26 and 28 October – 9.30am to 3.30pm
- Sharrow Community Forum, S7 1DB - 27 and 29 October – 9.30am to 3.30pm
If you would prefer to make an appointment, please call 01143053230 or email our team on firstname.lastname@example.org
We are continuing to open windows to ensure good ventilation in school. As the weather becomes colder, please encourage your children to wear layers under their school jumper or school hoodie. Please refer to https://www.silverdale-chorustrust.org/uniform.
LFD testing remains a vital aspect of our strategy to reduce transmission in school; please continue to lateral flow test twice weekly over the half-term holiday and beyond.
In the week 16th -22nd October, 14 students (two Year 7, five Year 8, three Year 9, two Year 10, two Year 12) tested positive for Covid.
