North Lincolnshire School Nurses are part of the 0-19 years Health and Wellbeing service which also includes Health Visiting. We work closely with all school Mental Health Champions to help support the best outcomes for your child.
We are qualified nurses with specialist training in public health for children, young people and families. We work with local communities, the whole family and individual children in different settings, e.g. homes, children’s centres, schools and GP surgeries. We lead and deliver the healthy child Programme for 5-19 year olds, working predominately with children, young people and families. We work closely with other health services, including schools, to ensure that the child’s health needs are met. We are skilled in spotting health problems or concerns early, so that we can provide early support. We work with other services to ensure every child and young person lives in a safe environment.
We provide a confidential health service. We can advise or signpost on a range of health issues that can aﬀect a child or young person. These may include:
Initial advice and assessment for emotional and mental health issues to include basic strategies and interventions for the following:
• Self esteem
• Self harm
• Sexual Health
• Healthy eating and weight management
• Bedwetting, Soiling and constipation
• Childhood ﬂu immunisation
• Support for young carers
• Health conditions requiring medication in school
School nurses support families at times when extra help is needed, such as help with parenting, emotional diﬃculties and coping with long term health conditions.
