- Provide basic care to injured/unwell children.
The Nurse's room
What a busy place it is! This is where you will find us. If we are not there please ask one of the office staff to locate us. In the Nurse's room you will find a comfy bed, well stocked cupboards with medicines and first aid treatments, an oxygen cylinder and an AED machine (defibrillator).
Please could we ask that children don’t carry any medication on their person during the school day. If your child should require any medication then please visit the nurse with your child in the morning before class begins or alternatively send a letter with your child.
More often than not a head injury, although distressing for the child, is usually minor and causes only short term symptoms. If your child does bump their head at school we will contact you. You will find a letter in your child's bag at the end of the day with important information about head injuries. Please check your child’s bag for any medical notes.
All policies and guidelines can be viewed in our Health and Safety Manual under the Policies section of this website.
Our hours of work are 7am until 2pm.
Due to allergies which some children have, DESS would like to gently remind parents and visitors that we operate a ‘nut free’ zone.
