Who is the School Nurse?
The school nurse is Jan Hunt, she works for the NHS in the community within a team and is based at Salisbury Hospital. She is able to see any student at school on their own, if a student wishes she may attend with a parent or a friend. All consultations with the school nurse will be confidential unless she feels you or anyone else is at risk; she will then refer to another adult after discussion with you.
Where and when can I find her?
She has a “drop-in” every Tuesday lunchtime in room 043 from 11.55-12.55.
Sometimes the day has to change and the school nurse will let you know- look out for any changes in the weekly bulletin and electronic message board in the foyer!
