e-Consent…it’s so easy!

Working in partnership with Wirral Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust, we’re delighted to introduce a new way for our parents and carers to consent to their school aged children’s vaccinations.

You can now provide e-Consent for all your child’s vaccinations with the click of a button, using your mobile phone, computer, laptop or tablet. 

The new e-Consent process is:

  • safe and secure
  • easy to use
  • convenient and saves time
  • friendly to the environment - saves paper

How it works:

  • you’ll receive an email or text from ourselves with a link to the e-Consent form
  • the form is simple and easy to complete
  • once you’ve completed the e-Consent form, click ‘submit’
  • you’ll receive an email to confirm the form has been received securely
  • the Trust’s Immunisation Team will receive your child’s form via a secure portal
  • if you’ve consented, your child will have their vaccine here in school

Remember, the new e-Consent process is easy, secure and convenient!

For information of ALL school age vaccinations please visit  wchc.nhs.uk/econsent/

To complete your child’s vaccination e-Consent forms, visit wchcimms.co.uk 

Each school has a unique code to access the consent, please see your child’s school code below.

SCHOOL:      St George’s Primary School                      CODE: WC104995

Dragon Club Reminder, by Mr Smith

Date: 8th Jan 2021 @ 5:34pm

Dear All

A final reminder that if you do not have a place secured in emergency school and you have any existing bookings with us, then we ask you to please over the weekend log on and cancel your bookings. This will help us to see accurate registers, but also if you would like to be refunded then this is the quickest and simplest solution.

If you have a place secured in emergency school, and need any bookings we ask you to either continue with pre-existing bookings made OR add bookings as usual so we know which children require our services each morning and afternoon. 

Thank you

Mr Sprung-Murphy

Emergency School Update: Dragon Club, by Mr Smith

Date: 5th Jan 2021 @ 6:06pm

Dear Parents/Carers

A huge thank you to our service users for your patience with us following the last minute announcement Monday night. 

The school has now allocated all emergency schools spaces and parents/carers should have received notification of the outcome of their emergency school applications. 

If you have been granted an emergency school place and you have already made bookings through IPAL - Please do not alter these. 

If you have been granted an emergency school place and need additional/new bookings then please go onto IPAL and make the relevant bookings needed. 

If you did not receive an emergency school place and therefore would be unable to make/use any existing bookings with us we ask you to please log into IPAL and cancel any bookings made for the money to be refunded into your IPAL account. It will be the parent/carer responsibility to ensure cancellations are complete for funds to return to you. We have lifted the 5 day cancellation period to ensure this is easy to do for all parents/carers. If you are unsure on how to do this, we ask you follow this link:
