Duties will include administering emergency/non-emergency first aid, liaising with parents/carers and staff, arranging transfer to home or hospital where appropriate and supporting the safe storage/issuing of student medication. Working as part of the Pastoral team, the post holder will also play a key role in the early identification of any potential safeguarding concerns.
