Please see the attached invitations for further details about these two exciting events:

Tuesday 24 September - you and/or interested colleagues are invited to Solihull school along with a group of students (secondary) for a unique event about the extraordinary life story of Eva Schloss. Eva will take part in a Q&A after a performance of and then they came for me, a critically acclaimed play about her remarkable family history and an exhibition, the promise, about the artistic talents her brother Heinz cultivated whilst hiding from the Nazis for two years. It is the first time the play and the exhibition will be shown together.

Wednesday 25 September - CPD day for colleagues (KS2/secondary) nationwide on tackling prejudice and discrimination in a digital age: what can schools do? As well as incorporating three events of the programme outlined above, the day will also involve a series of prominent speakers and organisations who will cover a broad range of contemporary topics, whilst providing practical advice and measure for teachers interested in developing such initiatives in their own schools.

Further information about the programme can be found in the attached flyer, with more specific details to follow in due course.

Please follow this link for further details about all three events in September and see the attached flyer.

The CPD event is appropriate for both primary and secondary schools.

Solihull Health and Wellbeing Board partners have unanimously agreed to support a call encouraging parents to get their children vaccinated against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR).

Children’s vaccine uptake has been slowly decreasing across England since 2012-13, meaning that children have missed out and may remain vulnerable to serious or even fatal infections.

In Solihull, almost 5,500 children aged 1-18 have either had no MMR vaccine or been under-vaccinated because they have only had one of the two recommended doses.

The free MMR vaccine is a safe and effective way of protecting against measles, as well as mumps and rubella.

The first MMR vaccine is given when the child is 1 year old, with a pre-school booster at 3 years 4 months of age. Both doses are required to achieve maximum protection. If children and young adults have missed these vaccinations, it’s not too late.

Parents should check their child’s red book to see if they’ve received MMR vaccinations as scheduled, or speak to their GP surgery if they are unsure.

Young people aged 15-25 are also being encouraged to check that they are covered as they attend their first festivals, travel to countries with ongoing measles outbreaks or start university.

Please share this information with parents, staff, and students (as appropriate) at your school or college. You can also read the full press release here.
