Please see the information below regarding the nasal spray vaccinations.
These are due to take place on November 20th 2020.
The school nurses will be wearing scrubs and personal protective equipment (PPE) this year, such as a mask and face visor. This is in line with national Covid-19 infection prevention guidance.
As the use of PPE may be off-putting for some children, please watch the three-minute video where the school nurse Sian Richards directly addresses pupils in simple terms. She also demonstrates the nasal spray for those who haven’t had it before.

The purpose of this service is to support parents in supporting the emotional wellbeing of their children during this time. Things you may wish to discuss about your child could include:
- their general emotional wellbeing at this time
- how they are coping with social distancing and lack of contact with family and friends
- family concerns
- concerns around school work/returning to school
- feelings of anxiety
You will speak to a School Based Counsellor who will be able to guide you in supporting the emotional wellbeing of your child.
You will be offered an initial telephone consultation of 30 minutes, dependent upon you and your child’s needs, and a potential follow-up of another 30 minute telephone consultation at a later date.
