School Nursing Service

School nurses provide health related support, advice and treatment to school age children and their families in a variety of settings. They help children and young people learn how to make decisions about living in a healthy way, so that they can enjoy and achieve things in their lives. Sometimes children and young people feel unable to talk with their parents or carers about health problems or worries. School nurses can listen and help them to decide what to do next.

 

School Nurses cover the following:

General health and wellbeing:

  • Concerns regarding weight/diet and exercise
  • Personal hygiene support
  • Continence problems
  • Support for medical conditions/medication in school
  • Support with children’s school health plans and staff training

Emerging mental health problems:

  • Self-harming behaviours

Vulnerable children:

Risk taking behaviours:

  • Support to stop smoking
  • Alcohol/substance misuse
