Year 7 flu vaccination
The School Aged Immunisation Service visited the school recently to offer the nasal flu vaccination. If your child is in Year 7 and missed this opportunity to be vaccinated and you would like your child to receive the vaccine, please contact them to book an appointment at one of their community catch up clinics.
If your child is in a clinical risk group or shielded group, you can also access the vaccine via your GP surgery.
To book an appointment please contact their 0-19 Admin hub on 0800 170 7055 (option 4).
Please visit the website below for further advice about the vaccination programme and details about the small number of children for whom the nasal vaccine is not appropriate.
Free School Meals over the festive break
We are delighted to share with you that Northamptonshire County Council will be providing vouchers for families who are entitled to Free School Meals across the county.
Manor School will receive a link from the council before the end of term, which we will then forward on to those families in receipt of Free School Meals. This will arrive via schoolcomms.
Rugby and Northampton Athletic Club have announced two new athletics courses for young runners. Starting in the new year, the six-week courses take place on weekends and gives young people the opportunity to try out track & field events and learn new skills from experienced coaches.
For details, please see the flyers below.
TikTok parental controls
TikTok is used by many teenagers and sometimes children younger than that 13 despite its terms and conditions. Using the new Family Pairing feature can allow parents to guide their child’s TikTok experience in a safer way. Features include:
- Search: Decide what can be searched for. This includes content, users, hashtags, or sounds
- Screen Time Management: Sets how long your teen can spend on TikTok each day
- Discoverability: Decide on the account being private (you decide who can see their content) or public (anyone can search and view content)

Christmas dinner provided for families in need
We are delighted to say we have been working with Raunds Food Bank to identify over 15 families who would benefit the most this Christmas. These families will be receiving all the necessary ingredients and food items for a Christmas dinner. Thank you to Raunds Food Bank for making contact with us.
Manor Maths Challenges
It's week two of the festive season and week two of the advent challenges. Be sure to also take part in Mrs Radd's maths songs competition (I believe there's a Christmas song regarding a pear tree that includes a number in the title...).
Christmas Jumper Day
The festive feel to the school was amped up today as staff and students donned their finest seasonal sweaters for Christmas Jumper Day. All money donated to the cause will be going to Save the Children. Thank you to everyone who donated.
