Thank You Pete!

Next week, we will be saying goodbye to our Caretaker, Pete Bannington. We would like to thank Pete for everything he has done for our school over the past few years, he will be missed by everyone at Myddle Primary.

Absences and Illness

We would like to remind parents that if your child is absent from school for any reason you must let the school office know, before 8.30am. You can report an absence by phoning the school on 01939 290834 and selecting Option 1. Alternatively, you may send an email to admin@myddle.shropshire.sch.uk.

Lots of parents have been reporting absences via dojo.  This is absolutely fine but absences must also be reported to the school office, as teachers do not always see dojo messages straight away.

We would also like to remind you that if your child has sickness and/or diarrhoea, they must remain off school for 48 hours from the last episode.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Please Drop Off Your Empty Sweet Tubs

If you have any Celebrations, Roses, Hero’s or Quality Street plastic sweet tubs, please bring them into school before 9th Feb. Mrs Hulme takes these to a local cancer charity who can recycle them for money.  Thank you to everyone who has already dropped boxes in – so far Mrs Hulme has collected 69 tubs – a fantastic amount! 

Measles In Schools

Cases of measles are increasing in the UK, including in the West Midlands, and it’s likely that there will be cases in Shropshire soon.

Measles is a viral illness that can be serious and sometimes fatal. Spending 15 minutes with someone with measles is enough to get the virus. Symptoms of measles include high fever, runny nose, cough, red and watery eyes, small red spots with a bluish-white centre inside the mouth. A rash can appear later, usually on the face, upper neck, hands and feet, fading after 5 to 6 days. If you’ve not been vaccinated against measles, you can be at risk, but it’s most common in young children. Someone with measles can spread the virus up to 4 days before a rash appears, and up to 4 days after.

Measles can have serious and sometimes fatal consequences, so make sure you and your children are up to date with MMR vaccinations and ask your GP about catch-up jabs if needed. The MMR vaccine is highly effective at protecting against measles.

If you are unsure if your child is up to date with all their routine vaccinations, you can check their Red Book (personal child health record) in the first instance. If you are still not sure, or if you need to bring your child up to date with their vaccines, you should contact their GP practice to check and book an appointment.

If you are concerned that your child has measles, please call your GP in the first instance, to reduce the risk of passing the disease to others in the waiting room.  More information on measles can be found here and information on the MMR vaccine can be found here .
