School Nurse


My name is Charlie Baker and I'm the special school nurse here at Curnow School.

I have been qualified as a Paediatric Nurse since 2004 and in my previous roles I have worked on a specialist cardiothoracic unit and more recently at Little Harbour Children’s Hospice here in Cornwall.

I cover both the Upper and Lower school sites and I aim to make a visit to each site during my working day. I work Monday – Friday between the hours of 8 am – 4 pm.  My role is primarily to support school staff in meeting the medical needs of the children / young people.  I also help facilitate the Community Paediatrician clinics as well as the Dietician and Epilepsy nurse specialist.  I work closely with both the school staff, therapy team 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.
