We have very close links with our school nurse, Jenny Warwick, and she is always happy to offer advice and support where she can. If you would like to speak to the school nurse you can contact her via our school office or directly through the School Nursing Service Website here
Below is an outline of their service.
School nurses works across health and education, providing a link between school, home and the community to benefit the health and wellbeing of children and young people. They promote health to individuals and the school population as a whole, and work in collaboration with teachers, youth workers and social care.
Objectives of the service
The core school nursing service includes screening children in reception, weighing and measuring children in year 6 and following up identified health needs. School nurses work with vulnerable children and young people where a health need has been identified, and can support school staff to manage chronic health needs, such as epilepsy or severe allergy.
School nursing includes specialist immunisation, enuresis and sexual health advice and support.
- School nursing is a universal service covering all children who attend a state-maintained school in the London boroughs of Sutton and Merton.
- Specialist services such as enuresis clinics are available to children and young people who live or have a GP in Sutton or Merton.
