Our School Nurse teams work within schools, other education providers and the local community to support children and young people of school age, and those who care for them. They will work together with you to offer support and advice about how to make decisions about healthy living.
School nurses are registered nurses who have successfully completed specialist training in the health of children and young people.
Each of our School Nursing teams is made up of qualified school nurses, staff nurses, family health workers and health care support workers.
On our specialised Family Health services website Better Lives, Healthy Futures we have a dedicated School Nursing section where you can find out all the information you need to know about the team and how they will support you. The website also has a ‘School readiness’ section and lots of other useful resources to help you support your child.
Telephone: 01924 310130, Monday-Friday 9.00am-5.00pm.
Who is this service for?
We support children and young people of school age and we work in partnership with schools, the Local Authority, our other health colleagues and voluntary services.
Where can I see a school nurse?
You can see your school nurse at your school, but if required we will see children and young people at their homes or other community settings.
