Professional Practice for Matron

Congratulations to Matron, Marlene Green, who has successfully completed a “Certificate in Professional Practice for School Matrons” with the Boarding Schools Association.

Matron forms a key part of the safeguarding and pastoral care at St Hugh’s and this certificate has allowed her to develop her knowledge, skills and practice across a wide range of themes including:

  • Growth & development in children and young people
  • Understanding adolescence
  • Promoting wellbeing
  • Supporting Children with Learning/Additional Needs
  • Children at risk
  • Bereavement, Loss & Divorce.

In completing this course, Miss Green had to attend five separate Study Days and also complete a 2500-3000 word research assignment on a sugbject of her choice which was bereavement. Many congratulations.
