School Medical Nurse
The school nurse service is provided for us by the NHS.
A School Medical Nurse visits the school when required to provide confidential health advice on issues such as:
- general health concerns
- emotional and relationship issues
Students wishing to make an appointment with the school nurse should see Miss V Green (School Medical Nurse), their Student Support Officer or the Attendance Manager, Mrs Bennett.
We have a number of staff who have trained in first aid but they are not qualified medical practitioners. Students who are ill during the school day may see a first-aider, but we are unable to care for ill students in school except for the administration of paracetamol (with parental consent). Parents/carers of students who are too ill to remain in school will be contacted and asked to take them home.
