St Peter's 13-18
At St Peter's School, we are doing all that we can to ensure our community is safe and well looked after during this difficult time.
Over the summer St Peter's gave a large donation of PPE to the NHS. This included over 6,500 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The donation included four infection protection kits (complete with mask, visor, coverall, gloves, shoe covers, tape and a waste bag), 48 filtering facepieces, 626 surgical face masks, 150 pieces of eye protection (goggles and glasses), 5,500 latex free gloves, 350 disposable aprons and 25 disposable decorators coveralls. The items of PPE have been sourced from St Peter’s School’s on-site medical centre, its science, design and technology departments, and donations from pupils. The equipment was delivered to York Hospital on Thursday 26 March 2020. Read more here.
But it doesn't stop there... “The health services team have worked incredibly hard over the summer to support the school in reopening safely. I am really pleased that we have been able to put in place the facilities to continue to deliver the high standard of care and health support our pupils are accustomed too, in a safe manner.” - Mr Mason, Health Services Manager.
The health services team has worked with many departments across the school and boarding houses to enable them to operate safely. Advice and support have also been provided to parents and carers whilst our nurses continue to help students with their day to day health needs.
St Peter's School now has a central temporary medical centre, meaning the old medical centre can be free to see pupils with symptoms associated with CV19 – to keep everyone safe and separate!
The School has also appointed a new mental health nurse to enhance our multidisciplinary health team.
We would like to give a special thank you to our wonderful medical center staff and nurses Dr Field, Mr Mason, Miss Bonner, Mrs Williams and Mrs Falconer.
