School Nurses

The School has a qualified nurse available on site throughout each School day. We have two nurses and the majority of members of staff are First Aid trained. School Nurses take direct care of minor medical treatment and decide if further advice should be sought for more serious problems.

If a pupil is too unwell to remain at School or requires hospital treatment, the School Nurses will attempt to contact a parent/guardian. They can also advise pupils on medical matters and give the contact details for outside agencies that can help. Pupils who may require the help of a counsellor can obtain information about this service from the School Nurses.

Our Nurses are also involved with health promotion initiatives and the delivery of health education lessons in Biology and PSHE.  They organise the School’s vaccination programme (e.g.for Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio) and also organise for outside companies to fit gum shields for the boys.
