First Aid

First Aiders

We have a dedicated team of First Aiders in the school, who will support children should they require medical support during the school day.

If you have any medical concerns relating to your child, please advise the school by contacting the School's Medical Officer, Mrs S Brookfield at 

How can I contact my School Health Nurse?

School Nurses and their team assist pupils and families through difficult periods in their lives providing information and support to improve health and well-being. As part of a multi-agency team, we also help young people feel secure by prioritising and safeguarding their welfare. We offer confidential advice and healthcare to students and their families and guide pupils to the best sources of specialised support to maximise their long-term wellbeing.

We also contribute to national public health campaigns, for example, immunisation programmes, smoking cessation and obesity strategies.

School nursing provides a universal service of advice to all school aged children with specialised support dependent on needs.

Whilst we would like to offer our range of services to all pupils, in reality resources are allocated to individual pupils according to the priority of their needs. We work alongside Health Visitors to provide a coordinated response to the needs of families of school-aged children.
