Medical and Health

Medical care and health advice are provided by the School Nurses who are on duty during the school's working day for all QEH pupils, parents, staff and visitors.

The medical details of all pupils are kept in the Health Centre and teaching staff are provided with a list of pupils with specific conditions (with parents' consent) that may adversely affect any part of their school life.

The Treatment Room is open for accidents, injuries and illnesses. Detailed medical records are kept of everyone seen in the Health Centre and parents are notified as soon as possible of any problems. Medicines are kept in locked cabinets and records are kept securely.

The Health & Safety Committee meets once a term to review and analyse all accidents.

The School Nurses are Registered General Nurses and many of the teaching staff are First Aiders.

If any parents or pupils would like details about medical matters, please contact the School Nurses Mrs Nichola Burns or Mrs Lucy Kelly on 0117 930 3062 or at [email protected].

Prescribed medication can be taken at school with parental authorisation. Please download and complete the consent form and send this in with the medication in its original package for administration by the school nurse.

The Health Centre is also the location of the Friends 'Clothing Cupboard' from which second hand school uniform in good condition is available.
