Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Year 8 HPV Vaccinations – Wednesday 10th February 2021

On Wednesday 10th February, your child will be having their HPV vaccination, given by the Kent NHS HPV team, at The Leigh Academy. This letter gives details regarding how your child will receive this very important vaccination.

On arrival at The Leigh Academy, please park in the car park and wait for your child in your car. Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to welcome anyone onto site, other than students having their vaccination. Please do not arrive at the academy until your appointment time.

Your child will enter the building via the external stairs that lead to the dance studio, at the front of the building. There will be a member of academy staff to guide your child and provide them with hand sanitiser. All students must wear a face covering/mask and maintain social distancing at all times.

On entering the dance studio, your child will be given their vaccination by the NHS HPV team. Following this, your child will leave the dance studio via the internal doors and make their way down the PE stairs and exit the building via the PE doors. You child will make their way off site through the basketball court and will re-join you in the car park. You will then be free to make your way home.

Please complete the online consent form marking whether you consent or decline consent at NHS Consent Form before Friday 5th February 2021.

To access the consent form you will need to enter your child’s school unique reference number (URN) which is School URN: 135297

Yours faithfully
