At our international British school, we are especially aware of our responsibility for the care and well-being of our students, considering that they spent 50% of their time away from home at school. Over this period, some unpredictable accidents and chronic problems require professional attention, in most cases, the teachers are not trained or available to do so.
The presence of a school nurse on the premises has repercussions on other aspects of school life as well. Such as the reduction of school dropout or failure, improvement of academic success, contributes to family conciliation, reducing school and parental absenteeism, etc.
School nursing is not a luxury, it is a real necessity that we’re thrilled to be able to offer to our St. George Madrid community.
