School Welfare

Mrs Tinning

Hello, I am Mrs Tinning, and I am the Welfare Officer at Brook Infant School and Nursery.

My role includes looking after the welfare of the children, from liaison with parents and school nurses, to providing advice on welfare issues and of course, looking after poorly children while at school.
West Sussex County Council, with the Health Protection Agency, have produced useful guidance on what to do regarding school if your child is unwell ie sickness and diahorrea, chicken poxs, slapped cheek etc.  Please click on the link below...
School Nurses

We work closely with our School Nurses, who are employed by West Sussex Primary Care Trust. They visit the school regularly where they carry out screening on all Reception children including height, weight and hearing checks. They are also available to see other children on parental request.

If you would like to speak to our school nurses, you can either contact the School Office or call the nurses directly on 01293 600464 (or go through the Crawley Hospital switchboard on 01293 600300).

Public Health England have issued information for parents regarding Measles. If you have any concerns about your child please seek medical advice.
Head Lice
Head lice are a common problem, particularly in school children aged 4-11 years. As you know head lice can be effectively treated with medicated lotions or by wet combing using a specially designed head lice comb. Further advice on detection and treatment can be found at on the link below
