Assistant School Nurse
5 days left
We are seeking to employ an Assistant School Nurse to work in school under the direction of the School Nurse and to deputise in her absence.
This is an exciting opportunity to work within the school’s health centre, meeting the daily medical support needs for our fabulous young people across the year group settings. The successful applicant will also work closely with our dedicated teaching staff offering support, advice and guidance to enable them to support our pupils safely and effectively. The role is interesting, varied and our young people, despite their difficulties, are a positive joy to work with and each milestone achieved, however small, makes the role very rewarding.
Due to the nature of our young people’s disabilities and difficulties, many of the children require daily administration of medication or other interventions such as gastrostomy feeding, catheter and continence care. You will be involved in the provision of awareness and competency training and assessment for teaching assistants and support staff. On occasions some of our young people may require emergency intervention and possible transfer to hospital.
Along with these routine interventions, you will at times, work in conjunction with a multi-disciplinary team which includes Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists and Speech and Language therapists as well as supporting the running of clinics within school for external health professionals, including Optometry, Dieticians and Paediatric Consultants. This is a fabulous opportunity to work with young people on a long term basis, building trusting and positive working relationships with them and their families alike, within a warm, friendly and positive environment.
We are seeking to appoint a Registered Nurse (RN or RCN) to assist the lead school Nurse within the School’s health centre and around the school site working 08.30 am to 16.00 pm Monday to Friday during Warwickshire’s term time.
The role is 35 hours per week - Term Time Only (TTO, 39 Weeks).
The successful applicant will be eligible for enrolment in the Local Government Pension Scheme.
You should have previous experience of working with children and young people and have an appropriate nursing qualification (see job description/person specification).
