School Nurse Drop-In for Primary Schools

Our service supports children and young people aged 5 to 11 years old in primary schools and home-educated children, as well as their families and carers. Support is also provided to schools and alternative education providers – every school has a named school nurse. 

Our team works in partnership with schools and other professionals to keep children healthy, happy and safe. They promote health and wellbeing, as well as offering the childhood vaccination programme.


Our school nurse service works in partnership with Barnardo’s and Brook. We also work in collaboration with the Local Authority, schools, GPs youth services and many other community services to support the needs of children, young people and their families.


The service is confidential, non-judgmental and inclusive and treats all children and young people with dignity, respecting gender, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental health abilities, religion, culture, social background and lifestyle choices.
