Set in a rural location adjacent to Windsor Great Park, the school enjoys excellent facilities including modern, well-resourced classrooms, a swimming pool and sports hall, small class sizes, an ICT Centre, Library and excellent academic, musical and sporting results.
St John’s Beaumont is looking for a suitably experienced part-time Health Care Assistant to work on Monday and Thursdays, term time only (approx.. 35 weeks a year), from 2.30 p.m. to 9 p.m. to support the nursing team. Rate is £10 per hour, with supper included and full training given.
Duties include caring for unwell boarding pupils under direction from the school nurse, performing vital sign observations, recording care on a computerised database, maintaining department stock and hygiene, and providing first aid care to all members of the school community. Other duties will include assisting the boarding team in ensuring the boarding pupils are well kempt and able to follow boarding routines, such as keeping their cubicles tidy and going to bed on time, whilst encouraging independence and self-care. Being part of the nursing team at St Johns Beaumont requires common sense, patience, warmth and the ability to “parent” several boys who hail from all corners of the globe.
St John’s Beaumont is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of its pupils and as such applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with current and past employers and the (DBS) Disclosure and Barring Service.
