School nurse

My name is Sylvia Hargreaves, I am the special school nurse here at Nancealverne School.  I have been qualified as a Paediatric Nurse since 1994.  Before moving to Cornwall I lived in Lincolnshire and worked as a specialist nurse trainer for children with disabilities.

Before starting at the school I worked at Little Harbour Children's Hospice.  I am based at school Monday -  Friday from 08.15 - 16.15.  My role is to support school staff with training in meeting the medical needs of the children.  I also help facilitate the Community Paediatrician clinics as well as the Dietician and Epilepsy nurse specialist.

If parents should need to contact me, they can do so through the school office or by ringing in and selecting the option for school nurse on the main school number 01736 365039.
