MMR Vaccinations


The rise in the incidence of measles and mumps is directly linked to the fall-off in Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination rates.  In order to address this worrying situation, NHS England and NHS Improvement have announced a school based MMR catch up programme.   This will commence from March 2020 for children in school years 8, 9 and 10 who are deemed eligible by missing one or both doses of MMR.

The link below provides information about measles and the benefits of the MMR vaccine

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.

We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above.

What action you can take

A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.

Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.

Wombourne High School Year 7 Student to Play County Cricket!


We have fantastic news, Year 7 student, Megan Day has been selected to represent Staffordshire County Cricket Under 13’s Girls Team!

Megan was nominated by her club, Beacon Cricket Club, to attend a trial earlier in the month at Brewood Cricket Club. 41 talented youngsters attended the trial all attempting to make the final 26 player squad for the 2020 season.

We are DELIGHTED to announce that Megan made the squad! Megan was the youngest player to trial and she had to work incredibly hard to impress the coaches given her age, but impress she did and she will be lining up to play the likes of Shropshire, Cheshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Derbyshire next season!

We are all immensely proud of Megan’s achievements and cannot wait to see how many wickets Megan takes next year with her superb spin bowling!

Megan dreams of playing cricket for England one day and we all truly believe that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
