    The School Nursing Service aims to promote the health of the school-aged population. When children enter reception class the care of your child is transferred from the Health Visitor to the School Nurse.

    All schools have a named School Nurse. The School Nurse aims to inform, educate and support children and young people to make healthy lifestyle choices to enable them to become healthy adults. The School Nursing Service is delivered by a team of School Nurses and other health professionals.

    School Nurses can also provide telephone advice and work in partnership with other agencies to provide you with the most appropriate care.

    Some of the topics that you may wish to discuss with your School Nurse are immunisation status, healthy lifestyles, smoking cessation, growing up and puberty, head lice, obesity and also any anxieties about your child starting school.

    The School Nursing Service is available all year, including school holidays.  

    The School Nursing Service is delivered in line with the Welsh Government Framework for School Nursing in Wales. Please follow this link to read the Welsh Government Framework for School Nursing in Wales, on the Welsh Government website.
