Care Team (Medical)
Our care team works closely with our school nurse. The team is led by Tracy Young. All pupils with medical/care needs have a Health Care Plan. Staff carrying out any medical procedure have the relevant training.
All medicines coming into school must be clearly labelled by the dispensing chemist with your child’s name. They are stored securely in a locked cabinet. ONLY PRESCRIBED MEDICINES CAN BE ACCEPTED BY SCHOOL.
