  • Public Health - Cases of Measles in Hillingdon

    Published 28/03/23

    The local Public Health team has informed us that there has been a recent increase in the number of cases of Measles in Hillingdon. The cases all children aged 1 to 16, and all are unvaccinated.

    The current MMR vaccination uptake in Hillingdon is less than 75%, which means that 1 in every 4 children in the borough has not had the two doses of MMR vaccination that provides safe, effective protection against measles. There is variation in uptake across areas of the borough, which means that is some areas a greater number of children have not been vaccinated. This increases the risk of measles transmission in schools.

    Measles is a highly infectious respiratory virus that transmits through respiratory droplets from an infected person when they cough and sneeze which is then inhaled by another person. If that person is not fully vaccinated the risk of getting measles is high.

    The signs and symptoms of measles to be aware of are:

    • Cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, sneezing, and a cough
    • Sore red eyes that may be sensitive to light
    • A high temperature (fever), which may reach around 40°C
    • Small greyish-white spots on the inside of the cheeks
    • A few days later, a red-brown blotchy rash will appear, usually starting on the head or upper neck, before spreading outwards to the rest of the body.

    It is important that if a child is suspected of having measles, they do not attend school. They must telephone their GP or NHS 111. Measles is a notifiable disease which means all cases must be followed up, and contacts identified and given advice on what action they need to take.

    For more information contact your GP or an visit the NHS information website:

  • Pedestrian Training – Year 4

    Published 24/11/23

    On Thursday 9th November, Year 4 pupils took part in Pedestrian Training delivered by the STARs team. The children were spilt into small groups and learnt about the different hazards on the roads as well as how to keep themselves safe when walking on the pavements and crossing roads, particularly busy ones. Once they had received their initial training, the children ventured out onto the local roads around the School campus to put into practice all they had learnt. It was an invaluable experience for the Pupils as they witnessed some of the hazards first-hand and felt confident in knowing what they needed to do to keep safe. We hope that by taking part in the Pedestrian Training, this will encourage more pupils to travel to school sustainably (walking, biking, scooting etc.) as they will feel more confident about travelling along our road.

  • Exploring Senses

    Published 29/09/23

    Using a multisensory approach to learning, the Nursery children explored their senses, allowing them to observe and make sense of the world around them. The children utilised two senses (smell and taste) by smelling various fruits and vegetables and identified whether they were sweet or sour, and which scents they found comforting and which they did not. With their underlying knowledge of particular foods, the children went on to predict what was inside a cup using their sense of smell. They found that their past experiences shaped their development, providing them with an increased understanding of the foods before them. They then experimented with their sense of taste by creating their own sandwiches using their knowledge of what fruits and vegetables they believe combine well together. The children benefited from this active learning method as they reinforced their understanding of familiar smells and tastes, enabling them to learn through experience and positively transform the world around them.
