The Medical Centre is situated in the heart of the school near the dining room. It is equipped to provide for the medical and emotional needs of all the children and staff at St Hugh’s. It is staffed Monday to Friday from 7.45 am – 6.00pm by two qualified nurses who are members of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
Children can visit the medical centre anytime, whether unwell or unhappy - a friendly face and listening ear can always be found.
Should parents wish to view any of the medical policies, please contact one of the nurses.
Parents are reminded that any medicine that is required in school must be brought to the medical centre and given to one of the nurses. Medication will only be accepted if it is written in English, in the original container in which it was dispensed, and be in date and compatible with your child’s age. Parents must also sign a consent form for the medication to be given. This can be downloaded here from the website or submitted online via this link.
All medicines should be given to Nurse Fiona or Nurse Antonia in the Medical Centre and not to form teachers, please. At the end of each half term, please remember to pick up your child's medication from the nursing team.
If, on any day, a pupil is unable to take part in games for any reason, an email or a note should be given to our medical staff email@example.com (Nurse Fiona and Nurse Antonia). Please kindly explain why your child needs to be taken off games and for how long.
If it is necessary for your child to be absent from school for a doctor's or dentist's appointment during the day, please let the form teacher know in advance.
