The school nurse for Castel is Mrs Trudi Kent.
Pupils in the Reception Year are invited to attend a health review, in school, during the first year. The children will then be offered a further review in Year 3. Parents are sent a health questionnaire to complete prior to both of these reviews on which any problems or concerns can be identified.
The school nurse is able to carry out additional hearing, vision or health checks if requested by parents or if teaching staff are concerned. Parents or guardians will always be contacted for consent before any checks are carried out.
The school nurse no longer visits school to carry out regular inspections for head-lice. However it is recommended that carers should examine their child’s hair on a weekly basis. The school nurse is available for advice if you wish to contact her by telephone.
If you have any problems, behavioural or medical, the nurse can be contacted through school or by telephoning Lukis House on 725241 Ext 5240.
