Our client is a thriving, busy school enjoying a famous reputation in its field.  On their 12 acre site in High Wycombe, they educate about 400 girls, aged 3 to 13, with a few boys in their Pre-Prep.  Approximately 80 girls are boarders at the School.
The School requires a dedicated, competent School Nurse to join the School's Medical Centre.

Apart from providing nursing care where needed as part of the team effort, the School Nurses ensure the Medical Centre's compliance with regulatory and inspection requirements, develop and update policies and contribute to the School's effort to best practice in pastoral care for all pupils.  In addition, the Medical Centre is a point of contact for staff members and the Nurses administer first aid to anybody on site, if required.
They require a professional caring team member who is RGN qualified (with qualification up to date) who has gained experience in looking after children and managing a diverse and demanding work load.
Benefits include meals on duty in term time.  Accommodation may be available.
