Dear Parent / Carer

It is that time of year again, when we have been talking about and celebrating Harvest time.  Following this, we are always keen to support the local Food Bank with food donations.

Therefore tomorrow (Thursday 21st October) please can pupils at Magna wear their Black Magna PE Kit (with blazer) in return for a donation of non-perishable food items, which we will then donate to the Food Bank.

Flu Vaccination *POSTPONED"

Dear Parent/Carer,

We have just been informed by the NHS School Immunisation Team that due to staff illness they are unable to provide the flu vaccinations on Monday 18th October 2021.  This is very disappointing news and completely out of our control.

At this time they have been unable to offer us an alternative date and they suggest booking a flu vaccination with your GP.

As soon as we have an alternative date we will let you know, however if you have any queries regarding the vaccination programme please contact the Immunisation Service directly on 01425 891162.
