We are very fortunate to be able to provide a full time medical service throughout the school term. The school employs two fully qualified registered nurses thereby ensuring that there is always medical cover for the school.
They provide a holistic service to our pupils, working with parents and teaching staff as a partnership. This should ensure that the pupil's educational, physical and emotional needs are fully met. Regular health assessments take place throughout each pupil's time in the Junior School. Any medication brought into school is kept and administered by the nurse.
The nursing staff take an active role in the teaching of PHSE, including personal hygiene and health issues in Year 5.
The nurses help you with any illness. If you hurt yourself badly, if you have been sick or if you just have a headache they will have the cure.
