Who we are
The School Nursing team consists of Specialist Community Public Health Nurses, qualified registered nurses with additional training and Early Years Practitioners who are specifically trained in child development of early years children. They have a range of skills and knowledge to ensure health needs can be supported.
What we offer
Our aim is to keep children and young people healthy and enable them to reach their full potential. School nurses 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 the management of anaphylaxis 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 or children and young people in academy and free schools where a child is subject to a safeguarding or child in need plan, or if they are a looked after child.
