Covid-19 Update:

Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, we are aware that some pupils may have missed their routine teenage vaccinations for HPV (Human Papilloma virus), Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio booster and Meningitis ACWY.

We are holding some community clinics out of school hours should you wish your child to be seen. If your child has missed any of their vaccinations, you will automatically be sent a text message inviting you to call us to book an appointment. Please be aware that this relies on the number on your GP record being up to date.

If you think your child is outstanding their vaccinations and you have not received a text message, please feel free to contact us on 0113 8433101 or via email at schoolimmsteam@nhs.net

 The current year 9 pupils will be receiving their second dose HPV vaccination alongside their routine year 9 teenage boosters so you do not need to contact us about this. The consent that you completed for HPV whilst they were in year 8 remains valid for their second dose and you do not need to complete another one of these.

Please note with the current backlog of vaccinations due to the Covid 19 pandemic causing school closures, there will only be 1 opportunity for your child to be vaccinated in school.  The team may not currently be able to make a phone call to you on the day to take a verbal consent, therefore, it is VITAL you fill in the online intent form as soon as possible so you do not have to attend a clinic in your own time.

GP practices do not routinely offer the year 8 and 9 immunisations as they are provided as a school based program.


The School Immunisation Team now use online consent forms. There are many benefits of this including making the process easier for parent/carers, avoiding paper forms being lost in school bags and reduces our carbon foot print. 

Here is the online consent form and information about the vaccination for year 8. You will need the unique school code from the letter you have been sent from school.

Here is the link for the intent form and information about the Year 9 DTP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio) booster and Meningitis ACWY vaccination. You will need the unique code from the letter you have been sent from school. 

If you do not have the information regarding your school’s individual code or If you have any questions you can email us on schoolimmsteam@nhs.net or call on 0113 8433101 and we will be happy to help in any way.

The primary aim of the team is to promote and deliver immunisations to increase vaccine uptake through various health promotion activities and planned sessions within schools and community clinics.

The main vaccines delivered are:

  • The HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccination course: two vaccinations - each given at least 6 months apart - This is offered to all pupils in the current year 8 cohort. You can find more information about the HPV vaccination on the GOV.UK website.

  • The School Leaver boosters (compromising of Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio and Meningitis ACWY) are offered to all children in the current academic Year 9.

  • We also take the opportunity to check that Year 9 children are up to date with their MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccinations and offer this vaccine if they are not already up to date.

The vaccinations we offer are part of a school-based vaccination programme and we go to all high schools in Leeds to offer vaccinations on site. Home educated children are invited to have their vaccinations at a community clinic by appointment.

You can find more information about immunisations on the NHS website.

Referrals for older year groups

If your child is currently in year 11 and you believe they have missed their vaccinations, please contact your GP in the first instance to ask about these being caught up at your surgery.

If your child is currently in year 10 please contact the school immunisation team to discuss making an appointment with us at one of our community clinics.
