Hello Everyone I hope you are all keeping well.  

 

I just wanted to let you know that there are a couple of additions to my Social Story section. 

I have been made aware that at times it is difficult to get some of our pupils to take their regular medicines.  In agreement with Mrs Kerr  I have compiled a  Social Story that can be used both at home and in school to help this situation.

 

I have also just a little bit of information from the School Nursing Team at Scrabo Children's Centre.

 

HPV vaccinations for ALL Year 9 GIRLS and BOYS will take place on

22nd March 2021

The School Nursing Team will be in school on that day to administer these very important vaccinations. 

 

Information and permission letters will be sent out by the Nursing Team and returned as per their instructions.  This is a life-saving vaccination so please take time to read the enclosed information pack so you can make an informed decision about your child’s protection against various forms of cancer.

 

Some reassurance for all parents:

 

  • All Covid 19 guidelines will be adhered to.
  • Nurses will wear gloves, masks and aprons.
  • Vaccinations will take place in the assembly hall to allow for social distancing and ventilation
  • Pupils will be allocated a timed slot between 9.15am and 11am. Parents will be informed closer to the time.
     

A social story is available here in the Pupil Welfare section to help prepare your child for the vaccination

Hi Everyone

 

With many children it can be difficult encouraging them to keep themselves clean and tidy.  I know this from having my own children, getting them out of their favourite sweatshirt or jeans to get them washed can sometimes feel like a mini battle.  Then there is their obsession with body sprays! These are great when they are used on clean bodies but a build up  can be just as bad as a build up of stale body odour.

 

The routines of bathing and showering (Personal Hygiene) are so important to teach our young teenagers  especially as they start going through puberty.  It is for this purpose that I have once again made a new PowerPoint to help.  There are a few Social Stories and a Checklist that might help with the routine in the Social Story Section I hope these prove useful

Last year I posted on the website various PowerPoints - Looking After Yourself.  I hope they were useful to both the pupils and adults within our school community. 

 

This year I hope to expand this resource with another series of PowerPoints called 'Spread a Little Happiness'  I'm sure you will agree that within our strange and sometimes difficult times we all need to look after ourselves and others.  With this series I hope to show that doing little things can make a big difference to someone.  It can help both their physical and mental wellbeing.

 

I hope you will find these as informative and useful as last year's.
