Important information:

Have a lovely summer break. School reopens to students on Wednesday 7th September for Years 7 and 11, and for Years 8, 9 and 10 on Thursday 8th September 2022.

We work closely with health professionals to support the health and wellbeing of students at Ludlow School. 

The School Nursing Team support our work with promoting healthy lifestyles and work closely with students (and their parents and carers) with long-term health conditions or disabilities, such as asthma, diabetes or epilepsy.  They also provide confidential health and advice for teenagers, with drop-in sessions, once a fortnight, and we have a weekly mental health drop-in, on Tuesday evenings.

The NHS Schools Immunisation Team provide our students with school-based immunisation programmes commissioned by Public Health England.  Across the school year, a series of immunisations are offered:

  • Nasal Flu programme for Year 7
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV1) programme for Year 8 and HPV2 for Year 9
  • School Leaver Booster for Year 9 - a single Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio vaccination (DTP) and a vaccination to cover 4 strains of Meningitis (MenACWY).
  • Covid-19 vaccinations (to be confirmed if this programme is to continue beyond 2021-22)

Consent from parents and carers is always sought, ahead of the immunisation day.  Further information is available by following this link: https://www.shropscommunityhealth.nhs.uk/immunisations
