School nurse

School nurses are qualified nurses with specialist training for children, young people and families.

The school nursing team consists of Specialist Community Public Health Practitioners, school nurses, and school health assistants and all schools have a named school nurse and attached team.  We focus on spotting signs of difficulties early and intervening to make sure young people get the best possible start in life. School nurses lead on the Healthy Child Programme (5-19) and support school-aged children to achieve the best possible health outcomes.

Over 18

We work with young people in schools, up to the age of 19. As young people prepare to leave school, we can work with other health and educational professionals to identify your on-going needs and signpost or refer families and young people onwards.

Moving in and out of Wiltshire

We work with specific schools, which means if a young person moves out of Wiltshire we will no-longer work with them.  Your new school will have a registered school nurse who can offer the same support in your new area. When a new student joins a school we work in, we can meet with them to get to know them and identify underlying challenges they may need support with.
