School Nurse: Mrs Nicola Walker / Mrs Frances Clark
A qualified School Nurse is available full-time during school hours in case of illness or accident. Pupils who become unwell in school can go to the School Nurse who will decide on an appropriate course of action. If necessary, she will contact parents to make arrangements for the pupil to be collected and taken home. Any queries that concern a girl's general health can be made to the School Nurse and she will endeavour to help at all times
Arrangements for Medicines in School
Pills and Tablets: No pupil may carry pills or tablets etc around the school. If she needs to take medicine in school she should give this to the School Nurse, with a signed medicine consent form (download form below), and go to her for the prescribed dose.
Asthmatics: Asthmatics are an exception to this rule and pupils should carry their inhalers with them at all times and keep a spare up-to-date one in the Infirmary at all times.
Anaphylaxsis: Pupils prone to anaphylaxsis must keep one EpiPen with them and one in the Infirmary together with a signed EpiPen consent form (download form below).
Diabetes: Diabetic girls should keep their own dextrose tablets with them and also keep a supply of dextrose or glucogel with the School Nurse in the Infirmary.
