Medical Facilities

The School has a school nurse who is based at Longbow House, Harlescott Lane, Shrewsbury and whose telephone number is 01743 450800.
During your child’s second term at school, he or she will be offered a general health check, including measurement of height and weight, and a hearing test to be carried out by the School Nurse. At some time during the first year at school, your child may also have a vision test carried out by an Orthoptist.
The School Health Service now operates a system of selective medicals. During their first year, and preferably their second term at school, children are considered for such medicals if concerns are expressed by the School Nurse, School Doctor or parents. In all cases full discussion will take place with parents and parental consent obtained before any examination takes place.

If you have any concerns about your child’s health in school, including bedwetting, soiling and behaviour at home, you can contact the School Nurse who will be pleased to discuss those concerns with the Doctor. The Doctor will then contact you and may arrange an appointment to see you and your child if necessary. Dental Inspections, sight and hearing tests all take place at some time during the child’s time in school and parents will be notified as these take place.
