School Nurses can offer advice on childhood illnesses that affect your child’s school life. We work closely with schools to ensure all children with health problems have supported access to education and establish friendships. For some health conditions we develop a health care plan around the child's needs so School Staff have guidance on how to manage the condition in school.
If you are concerned about your child's health or think they might be unwell, contact a doctor. For advice about when to keep your child off school please visit the Health Protection Agency website.
If your child has a long term illness and you would like to know how it will affect them in school, please contact your School and School Nurse.
