A fully qualified School Nurse is available on site daily throughout the academic year. Her core role is to care for pupils who are injured or unwell, providing appropriate treatment and if necessary organising further medical management. The School Nurse builds strong communication links with parents, ensuring they are kept fully informed of their child’s care and arranging for the collection of their child from school when required.
In conjunction with academic staff, the nurse is heavily involved in pastoral care and is able to provide basic counselling to students. The nurse can advise and signpost students and parents to services that will provide specialist support if necessary.
The school, in conjunction with the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Primary Care Trusts, provides a vaccination programme in line with government guidelines.
