School Nurse

We have a member of the school nursing team on a part time basis, either Joanne Smith, Heather Rigby or a health care assistant, based at Marshlands.  They oversee the children’s medical and health care needs and plans.

If your child has medical needs, a care plan will be devised with yourselves prior to your child starting school.

Please contact Joanne or Heather on 01785 356385 about any changes to your child’s medication or concerns about health or medical issues.

Medical and other professionals

Speech Therapists and Physiotherapists visit regularly to oversee pupils and advise teachers on individual programmes.

Marshlands also has regular visits by members of the sensory impairment team, community nurses, dental checks, orthotist, orthoptist and educational psychologist.

Accidents and First Aid

Marshlands has a number of qualified first aid staff who can deal with minor cuts and bumps.  In the case of more serious accidents pupils will be taken to hospital. You will be informed immediately in this instance. 

The school keeps a record of accidents.
