Nursing

The school nursing team comprises two school nurses and a health care assistant. There is usually a school nurse available during school hours. The team provides a continuity of health care for all our pupils as well as offering information, advice and support for parents. Parents are warmly welcomed to discuss their child’s individual needs at any time.

The nursing team provides training for our staff in specific areas such as gastrostomy feeds, tracheostomy care, diabetes management and continence needs. They are also the link to outside agencies such as pediatricians, dietitians, CYPSm National Deaf CAMHS and other healthcare professionals. However they do not deal with routine, day to day issues such as coughs and colds for which we recommend that the pupil sees their own GP.
