The role of the nurse is to provide nursing care for students and staff with as little interruption through class time as possible, and to liaise with parents, teaching staff and management where necessary. They are part of a Pastoral Care Team which meets weekly to ensure students struggling have the support they may need.
Attending Medical Centre
If your child becomes ill during the school day, he/she must report to the nurse on duty, having first obtained permission, if possible, from the teacher whose class or activity he/she is attending at the time. If a child is not well enough to continue at school, the Medical Centre staff will inform the parent/guardian of the child. Pupils should not ring their parents/guardians to collect them without first consulting the Medical Centre staff. This is a health and safety measure for the protection of your child.
For the safety of all our students and for legal purposes we must adhere to strict guidelines regarding the storage and administration of medicines.
