Teenage Booster and Meningitis ACWY Vaccinations

Consent packs for vaccinations from NHS Lothian are out now for pupils in S3 (and in S4 – S6 who have not yet received their vaccinations).

Every year, pupils in S3 are offered the Teenage Booster  to complete their life long protection, through routine immunisations, against tetanus, diphtheria and polio.   Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

In addition to the Teenage Booster vaccination, all S3 pupils are recommended to have a meningitis vaccine (ACWY).  This protects against several strains of meningitis.   Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

Please read the letter, discuss the vaccinations.  All forms should have been returned to school by now.  Any outstanding forms should be returned no later than Monday 16 December.

Foundation Apprenticeships

East Lothian Works’ Foundation Apprenticeship leaflet for 2020-2022 has been released! This leaflet displays the frameworks on offer for students, and identifies the pathways available for young Foundation Apprenticeship pupils. This year’s leaflet is particularly special as it features some of our current Foundation Apprenticeship students either at their workplace, or in the classroom. East Lothian Works would like to extend a huge thank you to these young people for being a part of this leaflet.

Foundation Apprenticeships are fantastic opportunities to gain knowledge in a certain subject while also gaining invaluable work experience. This provides students with a competitive edge when applying for jobs, Modern/Graduate Apprenticeships, Universities, and/or Colleges. They also boost confidence, self-esteem, and can provide pupils with a clear sense of direction once they leave school.

Foundation Apprenticeships are available to Senior Phase students. If you are interested in doing a Foundation Apprenticeship please speak to your Guidance Teacher.
