Bloxham School's Palmer Health Centre
The school’s health centre is based on the main site and is staffed by Registered nurses and a visiting School Medical Officer. They look after student’s health and wellbeing whilst at school, including: general ill health; support for physical or psychological health conditions; emergency ill health or First Aid; health education; support or administration of medication; and general health advice.
If a student feels unwell they should attend Palmer for advice and support. If the Sister decides a student is unfit to remain at school, they will contact parents/ guardians to discuss appropriate action. Students must not arrange to be collected by parents without visiting Palmer for assessment. Surgery times are:
Monday to Friday - 8.00am to 8.45am, 1.15pm to 2.00pm, 6.00pm to 7.00pm
Saturday - 8.00am to 8.45am, 1.00pm to 1.30pm, 5.00pm to 6.00pm
Sunday - 10.30am to 11.30am, 5.00pm to 6.00pm
All Boarders are expected to register with the school GP, whilst Day students can choose to stay with their family GP. The school’s Doctor holds two surgeries each week (times below) and students can book an appointment via the Palmer staff:
