Once again, Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire data indicates that around 2/3 secondary pupils rate how their school teaches them about managing money as less than positive. The PSHE Association are hosting a free economic literacy event in October which will support schools with this. Secondary senior leaders and teachers are invited to a FREE development day on how to help students gain confidence in their understanding of the economy and current affairs.
Free seasonal flu vaccinations are now available for all Council staff. Our priority is to ensure these are available to front line staff who are in regular direct contact with the public and service users.
Having a flu jab is completely safe and helps protect you from serious illness as well as helping us protect the most vulnerable people that we support.
Staff are reminded that anyone with a long term condition or pregnant can receive the vaccine free from their GP or pharmacist. If this applies to you, please use this option rather than the staff scheme.
To get a vaccination voucher complete the online form (links below). You will receive an email or SMS text to take to Boots Pharmacy. You can apply for a voucher individually or for a group of up to ten colleagues. Employees who do not have email or SMS access, or are unable to ask a colleague to print off the voucher for them, should telephone the Contact Centre on 0121 704 6000.
Please get your vaccination as soon as possible - vouchers are valid until 31 December 2018.
The course looks at brain development, play, styles of parenting, sleep, temper tantrums, communication and more and is based on the nationally and internationally acclaimed face to face course offered by the Solihull Approach. We have an unlimited multi-user license for as many parents and carers as possible to access these courses completely free of charge. We would be delighted if schools/education providers could promote these courses through their newsletters, emails, web pages etc..
