Vaccinations

Vaccinations

To all parents and carers

Good afternoon, from LCS.

 

You will be aware of the recent government announcement on the beginning of a Covid-19 vaccination programme for young people aged 12-15. Schools have been asked to provide a site for this vaccination programme and guidance was issued nationally by the DfE to schools on Wednesday.

Our local vaccination team have contacted us, requesting we provide a facility for vaccinations in school next Friday 24th September.

Children must be 12 on the day of vaccination. Please only complete the consent form if your child will be aged 12-15 on the day of vaccination.

Please be aware that due to storage requirements of the vaccine, the team will need to know the number of vaccines needed in advance and therefore the consent system will close 24 hours prior to the session in school.

Timings of vaccinations during the day on Friday 24th September will depend on the number of parents/carers who consent to their child receiving the vaccination. If numbers are high and not all students can receive a vaccination during Friday 24th September, the vaccination team will likely direct students to the nearest vaccination centre, or facilitate an appropriate ‘catch-up’ programme. Vaccinations in school will not run beyond the end of the school day, at 3pm on 24th September.

If you are consenting to your child receiving the vaccination, please discuss this with them, as guidance advises, and ensure they are aware you have consented.

Below you will find a link to the relevant Consent Form. Forms should be completed and returned electronically to the NHS. Please do not return these Consent Forms to school.

Vaccination Consent

The unique school code for Littleover Community School is DC112956

If you experience any problems completing the consent form or would like further information, please call the School Age Immunisation Team as below:

Repton Health Centre: 01283 707178
Clay Cross Hospital: 01246 252953
Or email at DCHST.immunisationteam@nhs.net

Below is a link to important information from the NHS, related to the Covid-19 vaccine. This information is in a number of different formats and should be read before completing the Consent Form.

COVID-19 Vaccination - Resources for Children and Young People - Gov.uk

Like all school-based vaccination programmes, the vaccines will be administered by healthcare staff, following the usual approach to school-based immunisation.

The School Age Immunisation Service (SAIS) will be the primary provider of the vaccination programme for healthy 12 to 15 year olds and will be legally responsible for the delivery of the vaccine.

The SAIS provider will be contractually responsible for the service, as they are for other school vaccination programmes.

The vaccines will be administered by healthcare staff with appropriate qualifications, who work to nationally agreed standards. Vaccines are offered in schools to ensure easy access for all children.

The programme will be delivered by an NHS commissioned SAIS team, which may include nurses, healthcare support workers, administrative staff, and other associated professionals who specialise in the delivery of school age vaccinations.

The team will administer the vaccination according to nationally agreed standards. Staff are appropriately qualified, trained (including in safeguarding) and experienced in vaccinating children and young people. Staff administering the vaccine will be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment.

Whilst schools may host immunisation services, they are not responsible for securing parental or child consent, for assessing Gillick competence or mediating between parents/carers and children who may disagree about whether or not to consent. This is the role of registered nurses in the SAIS, who have extensive experience and the expertise to handle these issues and are professionally accountable for their decisions. Legal accountability for offering COVID-19 vaccines to children and young people sits with the SAIS and not with the school.

Parents/carers with questions about the Covid-19 vaccination programme for children aged 12-15 should contact the School Age Immunisation Team, using the contact details contained in this email. Please do not contact the school to discuss the vaccination programme.

 

Enjoy your weekend.

Keep safe.

Nick Bush (husband to our SENDCo, Mrs Bush) has returned from cycling the entire coast of mainland Britain to raise money for LCS Sixth Form Uganda Project.

His aim was to raise money to help with post covid renovations of the school and vegetable garden at Child Africa School in Kabale, Uganda - one of the poorest countries in the world. Nick began and ended his ride in Ardrossan in Scotland and to summarise:

  • Nights away from home - 67
  • Total distance cycled - 6441 km (the same distance as Uganda!)
  • Ferries Caught - 14
  • Nights camped - 43
  • Total ascent - 60,410 metres
  • Punctures - 0
  • Best fish and chips - Papas in Cleethorpes

Thanks to everyone who has donated to his JustGiving page. The page is still live for donations and the link is below.

There is also a link to Nick's Facebook page to see photos from his epic journey.

 

GCSE Results

Posted 12th August 2021

GCSE Results

This year's GCSE results are outstanding. Well done to everyone involved!

To all Y11 students, parents and carers,

We are very happy with the results our students have achieved at GCSE level this year. As with our A Level results, we feel our process of awarding grades has produced a fair reflection of students' ability and efforts.

Overall this year, our students have averaged grade 5+ across a range of subjects. This means that the vast majority will be able to progress to the post-16 courses of their choosing and to the level their efforts deserve.

We are particularly pleased with the performance of our disadvantaged students, 78% of whom achieved grade 4 and above in Maths and English, ensuring a wide range of post-16 options are open to them.

Other highlights this year include:

  • One student was awarded a full suite of 11 grade 9’s, the highest grades you can achieve.
  • A further two students achieved 8 grade 9’s and 3 grade 8’s, which is a tremendous achievement for both of them.

Several of our students achieved results which were on average 2 grades higher than their target grades. They achieved these grades as a result of their hard work and dedication, throughout the last 2 years of their GCSE courses.

As always at LCS, the proportion of students who can progress to their chosen next stage of education is extremely high and this is something we remain very proud of as a school.

The results our students have achieved this year are outstanding, considering the extreme challenges the last 18 months has posed for all of them. Their commitment and resilience has shone through and they deserve every one of the grades awarded.

Our students have been supported to achieve these results by our dedicated and committed staff team, who have worked exceptionally hard to ensure students were able to achieve their best.

A-Level Results

Posted 10th August 2021

A-Level Results

We are very happy with the results our students have achieved at A level this year and we feel our process of awarding grades has been a fair reflection of students' ability and efforts.

A joint statement on behalf of Derby schools and Headteachers has been published recently in local press, which explains the process schools have gone through this year in awarding grades at both A Level and GCSE.

Overall, from the last set of formal A level exams students sat in 2019, students this year have averaged 40.2 points, compared to 40 in 2019; this is an average grade of B overall.

We are particularly pleased with the performance of our disadvantaged students, who have an average grade of B+ overall.

Headline figures are:

  • 13% of grades achieved were A*
  • 40 % of grades were A*-A
  • 68% were A*-B
  • 25% of students achieved 3 or more A*-A grades
  • 13 students achieved 3 A* grades
  • 1 student took 5 A Levels and achieved 3 A* and 2 A grades. This student also completed an EPQ qualification!

These results represent an outstanding achievement by our Year 13 students this year, considering the extreme challenges the last 18 months has posed for them.

Our students have been supported to achieve these results by our dedicated and committed staff team, who have worked exceptionally hard to ensure students were able to achieve their best.

I would like to congratulate all our students for their efforts and wish them well in their future lives and careers.

About LCS

Mr Wilding - LCS Acting Headteacher

Welcome to Littleover Community School.

I am lucky enough to have worked at the school since September 2000 and, in January 2020, was asked by Governors to take on the role of Acting Headteacher.  Having now been confirmed as permanent Headteacher in March 2021, I will continue to do everything I can to make LCS the best school it can possibly be, whilst maintaining the safety and wellbeing of all our young people.

We are a large comprehensive secondary school, located to the south west of the City of Derby, close to the main transport routes of the A38 and A50. We pride ourselves on the excellent teaching we provide for all our students, as well as the care and support all students receive to help them achieve their best.

We are committed to a broad and balanced curriculum and our students have achieved outstanding results at both GCSE and A Level for many years now. We also believe in providing all our students with wider opportunities for learning and developing through their work in the classroom, as well as access to extra-curricular opportunities in sport and performing arts.

I hope you find our website informative and easy to use.  We are always happy to receive ideas of how we can improve our service to parents, carers, students and our community. 

If you have any ideas or questions about anything on our website, or more widely about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us.  If you would like a paper copy of our school brochure or paper copies of any of the information contained on our website, these are also available, free of charge.

Littleover Community School.
Learning, Caring, Succeeding.
