In addition to teaching staff the school provides a School Nurse, on duty daily from 8.30am – 4:15pm. Our nurse is a registered nurse who supervises our Medical Centre and deals with pupils’ medical issues, illnesses and first aid, as well as providing help, support, and guidance to our students. The nurse also keeps records of all pupils with specific medical conditions or requiring essential medications.
The nurse will contact parents if a pupil is ill or injured and needs collected from school. Pupils should not make contact with home themselves!
Parents can contact the nurse via the School Office on 028 93322610.
