The medical room is staffed by a qualified Paediatric nurse, Sinead Ferramosca, as well as a number of qualified ‘first aiders’.
The nurse is on duty daily from 08:00 am – 17:00 pm to deal with all medical emergencies that may arise during a school day.
The nurse is present and on the pitches for school matches.
Emergency Medical Treatment
We shall make every effort to contact parents if a pupil suffers anything more than a trivial injury. We shall also contact parents if a child is unwell.
On accepting a place at Chandlings , parents are asked to authorise the Headmistress(or an authorised deputy acting on her behalf) to consent to their child receiving emergency treatment on the advice of medical specialists; including a general anaesthetic and surgical procedure under the NHS, should the school be unable to contact parents.
Administering medicines and treatment during the school day
Medicines/ treatment which need to be administered during the school day should be brought to the school nurse. We ask parents to complete a consent form; this then enables us to devise an appropriate regime.
