In celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 the government has added an additional Bank Holiday for Spring 2022 and moved the existing Bank Holiday date.
The Spring (or Late May) Bank holiday will be moved from Monday 30 May to Thursday 2 June 2022 with an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June 2022.
As Nottinghamshire County Council maintained schools would be on the half term break during that week, an extra day’s holiday will be added to the 2021/22 academic calendar. This will be on Thursday 28 July, meaning the term will end on Wednesday 27 July 2022 (a day earlier than that first published).
Police Constable 1490 Nick Stenner, the Schools Early Intervention Officer (SEIO) writes:

A message from the NHS:
It is now time for your child’s yearly flu nasal spray!
The free seasonal flu spray is offered to all children and young people in school.
Even if your child received this last year it is recommended, they have it again this year or they won’t be protected. With COVID-19 in circulation it is more important than ever to reduce the number of those becoming ill with flu this winter to help protect them and the NHS.
What do you need to do?
You must complete one online consent form for each of your children.
It is important every child has a completed form which states if you would like them to receive the flu vaccination spray or not.
The online consent form can be found through this link:
Visit date: 28th September 2021 School code: NG122949
If you decide you want to withdraw consent you must email email@example.com at least 24 hours before your schools session.
The nasal spray may not be suitable for some children, for more information visit www.nhs.uk/child-flu
Please note: If any of the following happen after completing this form you must contact the School Aged Immunisation Service: if your child becomes wheezy, has a bad attack of asthma, has started steroid tablets for asthma or has had this vaccination anywhere else.
How will the vaccination be given to your child?
We are a team of skilled and experienced nurses and support staff. The flu vaccination is a quick and simple spray up the nose.
Step one: The nurse places the tip of a thin plastic tube just inside the nostril.
The child can breathe normally whilst the vaccine is given.
Step two: Half of the vaccine is sprayed in one nostril.
Step three: The other half of the vaccine is sprayed into the other nostril.
If you have any questions or need support to complete the consent form, please contact our friendly team:
