Job Description

We are looking to recruit a School Nurse to join our small and friendly medical team. You will work and provide a high standard of care for our pupils across Mill Hill Schools.

The Medical Department

Belmont School Medical Room is staffed by an RGN and a HCA, who form part of the wider Mill Hill Schools Nursing Team. Although the nurses are primarily based in one school, they may work in any of the Mill Hill based schools as demands on the service require. Mill Hill Schools has a team of qualified psychotherapists offering counselling support. We have links to a number of local health care professionals in a variety of specialisms. The school employs a dedicated Sports Therapist, with whom the Medical Team work closely to support the Foundations’ extensive sports provision, including the management of the concussion protocols.

The Medical Centre is open from Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 5.00pm, offering a drop-in service to all pupils, in addition to follow-up care for injuries, management of on-going health needs and emotional support.

The Medical Room at Belmont is housed in the main building and is well stocked with medications and equipment to respond to the most commonly encountered issues. Nurses also support outside immunisation campaigns, such as the nasal flu and HPV vaccinations.

Pupils attend the Medical Centre for a number of reasons, and the nurses use a holistic approach to develop individualised care. Pastoral care is the basis of all we do and is very strong across the Foundation. The Medical Centre Team works closely with Pastoral team and parents and guardians to meet the physical, emotional and mental health needs of our pupils. We are occasionally called out to attend illnesses and accidents across the site. We use all pupil interactions to deliver appropriate health promotion information.
