Nursing

Our qualified nursing team are here to enable the children and young people at the school to access all aspects of the curriculum by ensuring that their many health care needs are met throughout the school day.

To achieve this, we rely on a very close relationship with all families to ensure we are up to date at all times with treatment regimes, and liaise should there be any healthcare concerns whenever necessary.

As part of a transdisciplinary team we work closely with the:

  • Therapists
  • Conductors
  • Teachers
  • Support Workers

We also work in partnership with community health professionals such as:

  • Paediatricians
  • Specialist consultants
  • Dieticians
  • Community nurses

“Some of the paediatricians choose to hold their clinics at the school which very much supports the transdisciplinary ethos of Ingfield.”

In addition to providing direct nursing care we have a significant training and education remit to train other school staff to ensure students healthcare needs are met in a safe and timely manner whatever the curriculum activities.

The residential students benefit from an on-call service from the nursing team- for any advice or direct nursing intervention out of hours.
