The successful candidate will ensure that pupils with ongoing medical needs are supported in school in line with their Individual Health Care Plans, administer approved medication to students and maintain records and reports, including those for statutory requirements.
The post holder will be responsible for maintaining the appointment schedules of the school-based counsellors and the school based doctor. The position also includes other administrative duties in support of the wider school, making this role both varied and interesting.
