School nurses work with families and young people aged 5-19 across education and health, providing a link between school, home and the community. Their aim is improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people. They work with families and young people from five to nineteen and are usually linked to a school or group of schools.
School Nurses are not based in school but work in partnership with linked schools and other professionals to ensure your child’s health needs are met. This may include signposting or referring to other services. Your school might also have a welfare officer/first aider who is in school every day to help if you are injured or unwell. Their role is very important but is different to that of the school nurse
