                                         Alice Foster                                                           Curnow School Nurse - (currently on maternity leave)

Hello, my name is Alice Foster.

I qualified as a Paediatric Nurse in 2012 which is also when I moved to sunny Cornwall.  I have worked on most of the paediatric wards, including: Harlyn; Fistral; Polkerris; Paed HDU and Paed Obs during my 9 years at Treliske. 

I cover both the Upper and Lower school sites. I work Monday – Friday between the hours of 8.30 am – 4.30 pm.  

My role is primarily to support school staff in meeting the medical needs of the children / young people at Curnow school. I work closely with the school staff, therapy team, other health professionals and wider community to support the needs of children / young people whilst at school.

Should you need to contact me, this is best done via the main school switchboard on 01209 215432
