The health and well-being of our children is paramount to Danes Hill and our Medical Centre provides a high standard of physical and mental health care. We have an experienced, registered Nurse on site in our fully equipped Medical Centre at the Main School:
Mrs Anna Corbett, Nursing Manager RN, BSc (Hons)
email@example.com Tel:01372 849235
A pupil’s health is directly related to his or her ability to learn. The School Nurse addresses the physical, chronic, mental, emotional, and social health needs of students and supports their achievement in the learning process.
Injured or unwell children are cared for in the Medical Centre and Anna also attends Bevendean regularly and as required. Parents will be contacted if we feel that pupils are too unwell to remain in school or if an injury needs further medical attention.
A Medical Centre Handbook (please click here) provides access to all medical and first aid policies, medical publications, forms and first aid qualifications as a comprehensive guide and ensuring easy access for staff, parents and visitors.
The Medical Centre is supported by a School Doctor and is a member of the Medical Officers of Schools’ Association (MOSA) providing breadth of knowledge, education and support.
Medical Forms and Information
We ask that parents of new pupils complete a Confidential Medical Form prior to joining, and that any changes to medical history are emailed to the firstname.lastname@example.org at any time during the school year. We ask that prescribed medicines are accompanied by an Administration of Prescribed Medicine form (as below).
It is also very important that parents let the Nurse know via email if children have had any medication prior to coming to school.
If any policies or documents need further clarification or you would like to talk to the School Nurse, please call the Medical Centre on 01372 849235 or email email@example.com.
