It comes as all children aged between 12-15 are being offered the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine in school across the UK this autumn.

Government guidance states that schools should “ask” parents for their consent – however children between 12 and 15 are able to overrule mums and dads and choose whether or not to get vaccinated.

It means if parents refuse, children can legally give consent if they are deemed competent using “Gillick competence”.

This means teachers would check if the child was aware what they were consenting to and are fully aware of what it involves.

Now parents in Tretherras secondary school have claimed that this system is unlawful.

They believe their children should not receive a vaccine because there is a “lack of long term data” as clinical trials are still ongoing, reports Cornwall Live.

In the notice the group claim they are “not antivax” but are asking the school to promise that they will not vaccinate children without parental consent – and they have threatened to sue the school if they “fail to satisfy concerns”.

The letter also goes on to say that the parents will “bring a case of harassment and emotional harm” against the school should “further harassment by school staff of our children regarding the wearing of masks”.


One of the parents who has a 13-year-old boy said: “We decided as a group that our children don’t need the Covid jabs.

“We feel there is no long-term data. If an adult wants to take the decision to get themselves vaccinated when a vaccine is still on trial, that’s their choice.

“But we believe children as young as 12 cannot make that decision with full awareness of the dangers.

“They’re not allowed to have sex until 16 or smoke before 18 but they can have a vaccination that’s still on trial – the school can’t even give a child a spoonful of Calpol.”

They added: “We just don’t believe in giving our children vaccines on trial.

“That’s why as a group we have put the school on legal notice – and basically said ‘If any of these children listed are jabbed, we’ll see you in court’.”

However, a spokesperson for the school said:P “No child will be immunised in school without parental consent.

“If there is a disagreement between parent and child, a meeting is called between the family and the school immunization team to discuss further.”


The legal notice addressed to the school, reads: “The UK Government, including Public Health England, have published guidance that makes a negligent mistake of law that Gillick Competency can occur for experimental COVID-19 vaccinations on emergency approval that have not completed clinical trials.

“Even if Gillick Competency is in our view unlawfully assumed in light of ongoing clinical trials (…) I nonetheless have parental responsibility and the right to be involved in the informed consent process.

“This is because the informed consent process has the potential of creating civil and criminal liability that a child under the age of 18 is not competent to litigate.

“The purpose of this letter is for you to cease and desist from these torts and the potential criminal offense.

“Medical treatment and testing without valid informed consent, in causing trespass to the person, cause the civil tort and summary criminal offense of battery.

“The indictable offenses of actual or grievous bodily harm, the civil tort of wrongful death or indictable offense of manslaughter may also occur if vaccine injury occurs.

“You can be held responsible for these torts and offenses by inducing them to occur.

“Financial damages in the form of vaccine injury can be recovered if a tort is confirmed by the courts.

“We will at a minimum sue on behalf of my child for a declaration as to legal rights and or for an injunction that will seek conditional prohibition of any vaccination and for recovery of my legal costs where permitted.”
