Essentials for new school matrons

October 17, 2018


Essentials for new school matrons presentation delivered by Jane Graham

Health and Hygiene in Boarding presentation delivered by Jane Graham


Why should you attend?

The role of the Matron in boarding is becoming increasingly demanding as staff are expected to take a greater pastoral role as part of the Boarding team. This workshop is aimed at new Matrons who wish to better understand the wider context of their role. It will explore how staff can work safely and effectively and provide the care for children that their role demands, as well as review the medical aspects of the role. This workshop will give a clear framework within which staff can operate, and also offer a great opportunity to share experiences and ideas with other delegates in a confidential and safe environment.
