School Matron and Healthcare
Matron has a huge presence in the boarding house at Boundary Oak School. She is on hand during the day if any pupils feel unwell and holds daily surgeries to administer regular medication and a sympathetic ear.
Sickbay is used for children who are too unwell to remain in their dormitory or who are infectious. Children are cared for here until they feel well enough to attend school. We do however ask parents and guardians to collect children who are infectious wherever possible and to return them to school once they are symptom free.
The school doctor is 5 minutes away by car and children can be seen on the day of the illness if needed. All boarders at Boundary Oak remain with their own surgery and complete a temporary resident form when attending any appointment that is needed. The local Accident & Emergency Hospital is 15 minutes by car and quicker by Ambulance. Matron will take children here if she feels a child emergency attention.
