Out of school hours our dedicated care staff are responsible for the children and their welfare. Each bedroom group, which can vary in size, is the responsibility of one keyworker. This keyworker will look after every aspect of your child's welfare, keeping in regular contact with parents, liaising with the school nurse, talking with teachers, planning individual programmes and attending annual reviews.
We ensure that each child's keyworker is around at important times of the day, especially in the early morning and at bedtime. Rotas are organised in such a way that each child is able to establish a close personal relationship with his / her keyworker.
Mary Hare employs waking night staff to meet the needs of any child who may wake during the night
We have taken great steps to make the bedrooms, play room and other accommodation areas as friendly as possible, to ensure your child is happy during their time at school. At the Primary School students who choose to board only stay 4 nights a week, going home on a Friday after school and not returning until late Monday morning.
The Secondary School has its own surgery which is managed by the school nurse and her assistant nurse.
If a pupil at the Primary School needs medical attention during the school week, this is attended to by either a member of the school care staff or the nurse (who will come to the Primary School site). If necessary, the nurse will consult with the Newbury GP who acts as the school's Medical Officer.
The school nurse works closely with the audiology team to monitor and provide for the needs of our hearing-impaired pupils. The school also enjoys close links with the Royal Berkshire Hospital, which provides priority ENT consultation where required.
