Kingfisher School

School Nurse

The Special School Nurses for Kingfisher School are:

Jane-Ann Archer, Senior Special School Nurse

Sarah Goss, Special School Nurse

They work part time in school on term time only contracts. Please see attached leaflet for details of the nursing service.  

For nurses availability please contact the school office.

One of the nurses will contact parents / carers of all children shortly after they start at Kingfisher School and arrange to meet with them to complete a health assessment and appropriate consent forms.

Kingfisher School has pupils with a wide variety of medical need and the Special School Nurses are able to support pupils and their families to ensure they are able to attend school and be fully involved in school life. They support and train staff to care for our children with medical needs to a high standard. Part of the Special School Nurse role is liaising with other health professionals as necessary. We work closely with other health agencies and as a result we are able to offer a number of clinics during school time on the school premises. The primary clinic we hold is on a monthly basis with our Community Paediatrician, Dr Haden. This is an invaluable service as it means pupils only miss a short amount of lesson time and it is one less appointment they have at the hospital, which can disrupt a whole day and be very unsettling for some of our children. We also have clinics with visiting health professionals as the need arises.  These include orthoptic, bladder and bowel service, LD CAMHS and dietitian clinics.
