Welcome

School Health

School Nurse

 

School Nurses are responsible for delivering cost effective public health programs and interventions to improve health outcomes for all parents, children, young people, and families.

 

School Nurses can offer advice and information on a number of health issues which affect young people’s lives. At times, young people and their parents/carers need the support of a number of professionals. The School Nurse Team works closely with other agencies/ professionals. If further support is needed, we can sign post and refer to other relevant services.

Referral to a School Nurse

 

Who can refer?

 

Anyone can refer to a school nurse team - if we feel unable to help with the referral we will signpost you to another service who may be able to help.

 

If you are a young person you can self refer, if you are over the age of 13 and are competent to give your own consent. If you are under this age the school nurse may have to get consent from a parent or carer. Call into your School Drop in and the school nurse will try and help.

 

Parents or carers can refer to the school nurse, just contact your local school nurse team and they will help you.

Health Visitors

Health visitors are qualified, registered nurses or midwives.  They specialise in children's health, health promotion and public health, and are there to help you!  They provide an essential service within your local community, to improve you and your child's health whatever your circumstances.

 

The first 5 years of a child's life are so important because they form the basis of a child's ongoing health. Health Visitors role is to offer families information and support through the child's early years, from pregnancy and birth to primary school. Every family with pre-school children has access to a health visitor.

 

Health visitors follow the ‘Healthy Child Programme’, which is a national Government policy aiming to improve the health and well being of the child. It does this by providing the family with support when they really need it. To find out more about the Healthy Child Programme please click here: The Healthy Child Programme.

 

The teams work closely with midwifery services, GP’s, Children’s Centres and other agencies to provide a range of services which include:

  1. The Healthy Child Programme -  providing support to the families and signposting to access a range of community services and resources including local healthy child clinics in the local area
  2. Expert help, e.g. with postnatal depression, behavioural problems, healthy eating, answering any concerns about parenting.
  3. On-going support to deal with more complex issues, including services from Sure Start Children’s Centres, other community services, charities and the Family Nurse Partnership for teenage parents
  4. Safeguarding support for families where there are child protection concerns.
