Who we are

School nurses work with the Local Authority schools.  Every school has a named school nurse or a named team. The nurse’s aim is to keep children healthy and enable them to reach their full potential.

What we offer

School nurses are qualified nurses, who work in partnership with schools and Public Health providing health promotion advice that may affect the health or development of school aged children. The school nurse can advise, or will know where help can be sought on many health matters, including sex and relationships, drugs, bullying and obesity issues.

We also offer training to school staff on Epipens and long term medical conditions to facilitate every child attending school regularly and reaching their full potential. School Nurses assist education staff with care planning for those children with long term conditions.

Who is the service for

All school age children attending a Local Authority School.
