Essentials for new matrons


Date: October 04, 2017


Why you should attend? The role of the matron in boarding schools is becoming increasingly demanding as staff are expected to take a greater pastoral role as part of the Boarding Team. This workshop is aimed at new matrons who wish to better understand the wider context of their role. We will explore how staff can work safely and effectively and provide the care for children that their role demands. The medical aspects of this role will also be reviewed. This workshop will give a clear framework within which staff can operate and also offer a great opportunity to share experiences and ideas with the other delegates in a confidential and safe environment.


Outline programme

  • An insight into the key aspects of the matron’s role and the duty of care
  • An understanding of boarders’ needs
  • An opportunity to answer some of your problems and issues
  • An opportunity to help you develop your confidence in your role within the school.
