Health and Emotional Wellbeing
We have a dedicated school nurse who has a wealth of experience working in across healthcare settings. Our Health Hub includes a treatment room and a bedroom where pupils can rest when unwell during the school day prior to collection by parents or before returning to the boarding house if a boarder.
If a boarder is unwell, they will be cared for in the boarding house by the houseparent on duty, who are all first aid trained, in consultation with the school nurse.
The School Nurse takes an active part in health education and promotion within the school as well as providing first aid for minor injuries and care for childhood illnesses, we also ensure children who have a temporary or long term condition have their medical and support needs met through care planning and staff training.
Emotional Health and Wellbeing is important to the whole school environment and we pride ourselves in having a warm and friendly department where pupils who may need some emotional support can come to when they need to. We work closely with parents in these situations and external agencies if applicable.
