School Nurse

To ensure that Fairfield Primary School provides consistently high-quality health care, students have access to a school nurse on-site during set hours. Our dedicated nurse ensures children are cared for and given first aid in a professional and consistent way and allows teachers and other staff to have more time for their core duties at the school. Having a nurse has enabled the offering of expanded lunchtime activities for students.
