The role of the school nurse is to monitor young peoples' health and promote Healhy Lifestyles. We provide a variety of services such as health promotion, developmental screening and health interviews.

Girls in Year 8 are currently offered the HPV vaccine and both Year 10 girls and boys are offered the DTP vaccine.

The School Health Team also run a weekly "drop in" clinic. This is held on a Thursday breaktime in the Den. If you prefer you can request an appointment by contacting the School Nurse direct or ask your Progress Leader to refer you.

Although this service is confidential, there may be times when the School Nurse needs to break confidentiality (for example, if a nurse thinks the young person may be at risk from significant harm).

There’s a new number for texting our school nurse from your mobile phone. Chat Health, the school nurse messaging service, is confidential and available Monday to Friday from 9am to 4.45pm. You can message for advice on all kinds of health issues, like sexual health, relationships, emotional health and wellbeing, bullying, healthy eating and any general health concerns. Look out for more information around school. You can still get in touch with the school nurse in the same way as you might have done before, if you prefer.

The text number is: 07507 330510
