School Nursing

School nurses are public health nurses who lead and deliver the Healthy Child Programme for school-aged children and young people. The community based teams work in partnership with school-aged children, young people and their families to address health needs and to promote health and wellbeing with a focus on early help and support.


Each primary and secondary school has a named school nurse who is supported by their team to promote health and emotional wellbeing in schools and in the community.


Meet the Team

The local teams consist of a range of professionals including school nurses, community nurses, nursery nurses, school nurse assistants and school health clerical officers.
