REMINDER: Covid-19 Vaccinations for 12-15 year olds

The School-Age Immunisation Team will be in school for the second day of Covid-19 vaccinations on Friday 26th November. Any students with consent who did not receive their vaccination earlier this week will be vaccinated then. We are still waiting to hear from the School-Age Immunisation Team regarding whether they will reopen the link for providing consent. Parents can also still book out-of-school vaccinations for 12-15 year olds using the following link: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.

NEW: URGENT Laptops

If your child has been allocated a laptop from the college for used at home and the device has not been returned to college as part of the recall before the summer holidays, then it is now overdue and needs to be returned as soon as possible for essential software upgrades.

This is imperative since some of the software will no longer be supported and needs to be replaced.

Any queries with this can be emailed to: pjw@bodmincollege.co.uk

NEW: Use of personal data by exam boards/awarding bodies

For those students entered for examinations this year, we have received information to be shared with candidates regarding what personal data will be shared with exam boards, and how this will be used and stored under data protection regulations. To access full details regarding this, please see the 'Information for Candidates' document attached.

NEW: Lost PE kit

If your child has lost an item of PE kit, please see Mr Russell in the PE Office as there is a large collection of unnamed PE kit items which students can look through.

REMINDER: Medical appointments

If a student has an appointment booked during school time, please can parents either provide students with a note for their tutor, or phone to leave a message using Option 2 for the Attendance line.
