Prep School Nurse (Maternity Cover) - London, E17
To start ASAP
Our client is a private day school in Walthamstow in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. The school occupies a large campus around its original Grade II listed Georgian and Victorian terraced buildings. The school has more than 1,430 pupils, aged 4 to 18, split equally between boys and girls.
The School Nurse is part of a wider pastoral and First Aid team whose aim is to promote the physical health and emotional wellbeing of pupils at the School, particularly in the Prep School. The provision runs from 07.30 - 18.00 during the school day and is a welcoming space offering medical support for pupils and staff.  This support, in conjunction with the wider pastoral team, is designed to meet a wide range of day to day needs, as any medical centre would in the wider world. From meeting the physical needs of some pupils and the administration of first aid, to guiding pupils who might need psychological support, the role is varied but vital in their whole school community.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic, experienced and flexible individual to join the School and a competitive salary is on offer commensurate with this important term-time only role.
