    The School Nursing Service offers support and advice to children, young people and their families or carers to help ensure that they reach their full potential during their school aged years and beyond. 

    School nurses are a team of Registered Nurses with specialist skills who can provide expert public health advise for children that range from 4 to 18 years. 

    School Nurses become involved in the health and wellbeing needs of children once they become 4 years old taking over the care from the Health Visitor.

    Confidential advice and support can be offered for a wide range of issues:

    - Promoting healthy lifestyles for primary school aged children

    - Promoting healthy lifestyles, relationships and lifestyle choices for adolescents and young adults hopefully with the aim of enabling informed choices.

    - Parental worries about their child

    - Emotional health and well being

    - Immunisations

    - General advice about health conditions

    - Helping to ensure that children and young people with complex health needs can access education.

    - Bedwetting and constipation

    - Healthy relationships and sexual health

    - The support of children and young people in need or at risk of harm

    - Healthy growth and development

    School Nurses carry out the Child Measurement Programme and a vision and hearing test for children in their first year of school.

    Immunisations in high school are also delivered by the School Nursing Service.

    In high schools young people can access the School Nursing service for support and advice independently whilst in school.
