In common with all Harrow schools, we work closely with the borough's medical services. These include immunisation programmes and the Harrow School Nursing Service. We also have our own fully-qualified school nurse.
Our aim is to support students to remain in school whenever possible. Please let the school nurse know if your child has a medical condition which may affect them whilst in school. You may need to complete a care plan and supply medication if required; please download a copy below if necessary.
Students with asthma and/or allergies should carry their own medication as well as having back-up medication, which will be kept in the medical room.
Over the counter medication, such as paracetamol or cough medicine required by a student must be supplied by parents/carers. Please complete the administration of medication form and return it to the school nurse.
If your child has a stomach bug they should remain off school for 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.
Please feel free to contact the school nurse regarding any medical issue concerning your child.
Nower Hill High School has a student counselling service run by our full-time School Counsellor. The service is available to students who require professional support with social, developmental, emotional and/or mental health issues. Students may request an appointment directly through the School Counsellor or can be referred by their Assistant Headteacher. As a school, we feel that offering our students a confidential space promotes access to a quality service, encourages students to reach out when needed and promotes a whole school awareness of mental health issues.
