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.
