Reboot North Yorkshire

Published on 07/01/22

Reboot North Yorkshire provides recycled IT equipment and internet access to help people across the county stay connected. The scheme takes laptops, smart phones, tablets and iPads no longer needed by their owners and refurbishes them before they’re distributed to those in need. These devices can support people to access vital services, help children do their school work and make sure people of all ages can stay in touch with friends and family. If you got a technology upgrade for Christmas and have a device that can be donated to Reboot North Yorkshire, you can find your nearest drop off point and more information about the scheme at www.rebootny.co.uk

Year 9 Vaccinations 2022

Published on 15/12/21

Your child is being offered two vaccines in Year 9. These are the MenACWY vaccine, which helps to protect against Meningitis and Septicaemia, and the DTP booster which helps to protect against Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio.

How do I give my consent?

  1. Go to www.hdft.nhs.uk/schoolvaccinations
  2. Enter the School Code and click “Find School” - (Caedmon College 121667)
  3. Complete the form with your child’s information and parent/guardian contact information*.
  4. Click the green “Submit” button.
*Once submitted, if you provide a valid email address, you will receive an automatic confirmation email. We will also email you to let you know that your child has been immunised. If your child has specific medical requirements, one of our nurses may need to get in touch before we are due to carry out the immunisations. We routinely share your child’s vaccination information with their registered GP surgery.
The deadline for online consents is 2 January

Why is the Meningitis vaccine being offered?

The MenACWY vaccination helps to protect your child against four types of meningococcal bacteria (groups A, C, W and Y) that can cause meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning). These diseases are very serious.

Why is the Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio vaccine being offered?

  • The 3-in-1 DTP booster vaccine helps protect your child against three severe diseases: diphtheria, tetanus, and polio.
  • Diphtheria is a serious disease that can damage the heart and nervous system.
  • Tetanus is a painful disease affecting the nervous system which can lead to muscle spasms and breathing problems.
  • Polio is a virus that attacks the nervous system which can cause permanent paralysis of muscles.

Where can I find out more?

We hope that the information provided addresses any concerns you or your child might have about these vaccinations. By having these vaccines your child will be protecting themselves and others from very serious diseases. It is important that this letter is shared with your child.
