What do school nurses do?

School Nurses are qualified nurses who have completed specialist training in public health for children, young people and families. Our School Health team is made up of specialist public health nurses, community staff nurses and community nursery nurses, and assistant practitioners.
We work with school age children from five to 19 years of age, and their families. We support them in a variety of settings in the local community including schools, homes, children’s centres, and health centres.

The School Nurse team is responsible for delivering public health programmes to improve outcomes for children and young people. We work closely with statutory and voluntary agencies to ensure that the child’s health needs are met and to ensure that each and every child and young person reaches their full potential.
