This is a reminder for all those students on Tuesday 26th January 2021 the Leaver Booster and Men-ACWY vaccinations will take place at XP East School. Timings as follows:

Year 9      09:00 – 10:30

Year 10    10:30 – 12:00

No individual timings are available for students. The students arrive within the time allocated for their Year group, as this is their bubble year in school.  Please ensure you have sent the E-Form that was sent to your email address that you have registered with the school. The school cannot confirm if you sent the E-Form off as the E-Forms get forwarded to RDASH to account for vaccinations needed for the day.

If you would like the E-Form link to be forwarded to you please contact your child’s crew leader or myself Mrs Mawby (nmawby@xpschool.org).

Crew Tomlinson – New year, Great start!

Last week Crew made a fantastic start to 2021. It was always going to be different with working from home however crew have started the year absolutely flying. Crew have had fantastic attendance and made brilliant contributions on hangouts.

Last week we had a check in looking at any new years resolutions people had, which included more exercise, eating healthier and becoming more organised.

Fran also shared a lovely picture of her cute dog who joined her family over the Christmas period, who I think it gorgeous!

 

Crew are also working hard on their passage preparation- reflecting over the last 2 1/2 years they have studied at XP. Crew are working really hard, particularly well done to Fran and Nada who have made some great progress on their script over the last week. Remember crew the hard work will pay off.

 

Looking forward to seeing what great work you produce this week and again a massive Well done with all your efforts in this challenging time.

This Friday Crew continues with their first aid for Duke of Edinburgh. Crew looked at what to do when someone is having a diabetic emergency. Crew also independently researched possible causes and treatments of type 1 and 2 diabetes. Crew showed great maturity in group discussions and are well on their way to be trained first aiders. Great work this week everyone!

X25 Year 9 Fieldwork

Year 9 will be going on fieldwork on 13th October as part of their ‘Welcome to the Machine’ expedition. We’ll be leaving school at 9:30AM and returning at 3:00PM, so this will not affect their drop off or pick up times, however, due to the pandemic, we ask that all students have guardian consent for them to attend.

We’ll be visiting Hatfield Moors, to collect species data and conduct scientific tests on the peatland during the day. We will be maintaining the bubbles, and wearing masks on the coaches to minimise risk of transmission, and we will be outside all day.

As part of the precautions, we ask that you fill in the following google forms, granting permission for students to attend the fieldwork on 13th October:

This outlines that if your child falls ill with covid symptoms on that day, they would need collecting from Hatfield Moors (about 40 minute drive from the school).

They will need packed lunches (school will provide FSM pack-ups), a face mask, warm layers, decent shoes and a waterproof on the day.

If you have any questions about the plans for the day or concerns, don’t hesitate to email me (jnixon@xpschool.org)

 

VACCINATION AND IMMUNISATION

The last few months have been an exceptionally challenging time for both schools and health services, This has had an effect on students receiving their vaccinations and immunisations at school.  As you will be aware the school age vaccination programme was suspended at the beginning of the outbreak leaving a large number of students outstanding vaccinations.

There is a plan of recovery to ensure that all these students are caught up by the end of August 2021, Please see the dates below that are scheduled in for the 20/21 academic year in order to deliver vaccinations to the eligible students at XP / XP East School.

YEAR 10 BOYS & GIRLS SLB/MEN-ACWY 26/01/2021

YEAR 9 BOYS & GIRLS   SLB/MEN-ACWY 26/01/2021

YEAR 8 BOYS & GIRLS 1ST DOSE HPV 06/05/2021

YEAR 9 BOYS & GIRLS 2ND DOSE HPV 06/05/2021

Please Note: Due to the ongoing impact of COVID 19, NHS England have also specified that the seasonal flu programme this year will be extended to include Year 7 students. This will be the first time that Flu vaccinations will have been delivered in secondary schools. Flu vaccinations take place in December 2020.  Further information and permission letters will be sent to all parents for consent nearer the date.

If you have any questions please forward them to nmawby@xpschool.org

 

 

Freeze Frame

Crew Stan Lee had a fantastic time in our Wise Wednesday session creating a still image.

 

This session we looked at what a still image might look like and how they as a crew could recreate their own.

Crew working together…
